What's on my mind
Musings of a Housewife said it so much better than I ever could. The trials of watching your child grow up and into a PERSON not just a kid, are hard! My exhusband just moved a bit more "local" so our visitation has been significantly changed in that regard, and with that comes a whole slew of what we lovingly refer to as "attitude adjustments". My oldest son is his father to a T-same long and lean body type, same facial expressions, same temperament to a point, and he does so many of the same things to frustrate me to no end.
The glowing eyes are no indicator of said temperament, those are just a result of a bad photographer (not me never!). I love that kid so much, he is a huge helper to me while Bobby is gone. He's SCARY smart, he's funny and he amazes me everyday with just how big hes gotten. I pray every day that I can guide him into being a good man and I'm so proud I was given the opportunity to be his mom.
Now, dear readers...any thoughts on how to deal with those sullen, flippant, too smart for his own good times where I want to pull my hair out?
