|I swear, he looked JUST LIKE THIS.|
That kid - that kid is 12. Actually, he turned 12 over 4 months ago; but I just noticed. Just noticed there will be no more little boy smiles coming from that direction, no more simple happiness emanating from his corner of the house. Oh, he's a pleasant enough 12-year-old, Brian is; but he's growing up. Changes are gonna happen.
You know, up to now, all it took were hamburgers and legos to make Brian happy. Also? Mayonnaise. He could eat it with a spoon. Life's been that simple.
Well, parenting's like that. Keep moving and - for heaven's sake - don't look down.
