My son is growing up so fast...

My son is out of school for the summer... He is now 15 and growing up so fast... I have never left him on his own for any extended amount of time... But my daughter is now grown up too and making her own life now... I was a bit nervous letting him home while I work because he can be a holy terror at times... But I have to give him credit since I have given him a chance to show I can trust him he has... I am extremely proud of him for acting more responsible lately... JD is really a good kid and he always has been... Sometimes he still surprises me with showing he can do what it takes to be trusted... I can still remember when my children were growing up and they always look to mom and dad for all the answers, those were just great times... Now they want to do it all on their own... Hmmm yes proud but sad because sometimes dad feels left out... But then like this morning I woke up for work and my son reminded me he still there and I am a big part of his life... He made me breakfast while I was getting ready for work and then told me have a nice day at work... Then came the kicker he said I love you dad... I love hearing it, because it always melts my heart to know how he feels... I love my children so much and it is always a pleasure to hear it back from them...

Just the thoughts of a happy dad...

And there I was 'complaining' [well, not really complaining..LOL] about our little one's neverending questions. But I see what you mean even if ours is still this little. There are days I can't wait for her to be independent but there are more days when I just want her to stay as she is...which I'm sure is not happening.

We only have one so when this one grows up, that's it for us. So we're trying to enjoy her being 'our baby' as much as we can.

Thanks for sharing this. It helps put things in perspective somehow....at least for me. At least now I know all's not lost once ours is 15...LOL. Your son is so sweet though to do the things he did this morning.

Thanks for the hop and the comment yesterday. I got a bit busy so I wasn't able to come back to thank you then. And yes, I'm just letting our little one be the 'chatter box' that she is...

Take care...and Hi Nancy!
