“Son, you outgrew my lap, but never my heart.” ~Unknown
It’s been a week of many new things,
more grown-up things.
The first locker at school,
learning how to open that lock.
A pierced ear,
because that seemed to be the thing to do.
Meetings for joining the golf team.
Trying on golf shoes,
in your mom’s shoe size.
A doctor’s check-up,
the news that you’ve grown three inches.
How did my baby, my first-born, my only son
grow into such a big boy?
Where does the time go?
Not a mischievous toddler anymore,
but a brainy middle schooler.
(Who got into some honors classes! Yes, this mommy is very proud. )
No matter your size,
I’ll love you,
