Sooooo… let’s talk about how hard it is to see your babies grow up. My son turned 9 today, and this is the first birthday that he would rather spend with his friends than with his family (i.e. ME… okay so I’m taking it very personally). If I went into the room where he’s playing with is friends and picked him up and held him and told him how much I love him would that be embarrassing for him? Yes? Okay, I’ll keep resisting that urge.
