Life Stages

This is my eldest child when he was 12. My grandmother always said that you learn with your first child and enjoy the rest. My grandmother was both right and wrong, while I did learn a bunch that I corrected with my other two, I've enjoyed being his mother more than I could have ever imagined.

He's always doing something to make me laugh, and it always works. You try jumping onto a kid who rolls those big brown eyes at you and gives you a heart melting grin and see how strict you end up being.

Not very, let me tell you.

And then last week he went and grew up on me!! Irrevocably, no return grew up.

This precious baby got his driver's license!!

I don't know if I'm ready for this stage of life.

I hear you! My oldest is taking drivers ed right now. Yikes! But with the change of laws in Kansas, it will be three years before the next one is old enough. Fine by me. :)

Gillian, you lucky thing-my daughter is eligible to get her learner's in November! I don't know how I'm going to cope with two of them driving. I don't even want to think about what that will do our insurance rates...
