Today was my son's first day of middle school. I was fine until he walked out the door to get on the bus. Just then it felt like his first day of kindergarten and my eyes began to get teary. All summer, I had been thinking, "Wow, my little boy will be going to middle school this year. Things went well on his first day and he must have made a few new friends because there's a couple of new boys added to the pack and he came home acting as though he was now grown and too cool to listen to me. Kids are funny. They grow up too fast. He may be ready for this, but I'm not. He's on his way of becoming a teenager. Sometimes, I make him crazy and he tells me "Mom, I'm not a baby." It is so funny how fast they grow up. He went from wearing jeans and novelty tees to wearing COLOGNE, skinny jeans and casual dress shirts just over summer vacation and a little birdie told me he has a girl's number in his cell phone. Kids should come with a rewind button, so parents can take them back. He is my one and only son, so he might as well be the baby.
