Moms will understand.

A couple of weeks ago my son (I'd like to say my baby but he would disown me) turned thirteen. In another month he will start Jr. high and I see him changing daily in moving from boyhood too young manhood.

This last Friday my other son who is twenty-one and lives near Oklahoma City invited my younger son to spend this week with him. So I took him down, spent the night with them and then headed back to Missouri thinking about everything I planned to get done with him gone.

So today I called my younger son to see how he was holding up being away from mom and yep you guessed it, he's having the time of his life and to my utter dismay not missing mom a bit.

I unfortunately can't say the same. I can't wait for him to come home. Let's just face it, to a mom selling a million dollar mansion doesn't hold water to spending time with your little boy.

Cute photo Billi.

I now know what all those people were talking about when they say they grow up so fast. Enjoy the ride.

You gotta let go.  He's 13 now, and if he were Jewish he'd be a man.

I'm not a Mom but I'm the world's greatest Aunt so I know a wee bit of what you're feeling.  My first nephew was just married last week - WHAT?!   And the youngest, a neice is wearing makeup (and not very well might I add)  When did this happen, lol

Hi Billi, I certainly understand what you are saying.  They grow up so fast.  While we want to help them grow the wings they need to fly and soar, it's still kind of sad.  If your son is 13, you've got some really fun years coming up in Jr. High and High school.  Enjoy that time as I promise it too will fly by.

I should not have read this today-my daughter (13) is leaving directly from school to a freind's house for a sleepover and shopping trip tomorrow. I just did the math and realized I won't see her again until 6PM tomorrow! I really don't know how moms or dads handle it when their kids grow up and don't see them and talk to them every day.  Can't say a million-dollar sale will fill that gap for me either. Hope you found a way to distract yourself and enjoy your day Billi.
