I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that my middle son is 9. It doesn’t feel like he should be that old.
What is even more amazing is the men they are growing up to be. Alex and I have waved good bye to our boys for a week. They will be spending some much needed time with Grandma Jan and Grandpa.
It is hard for me to let go because I want to be there to ensure they aren’t getting ito trouble, they aren’t fighting, that they are being the young men I want them to be.
I also know that if I don’t allow them this freedom to do the wrong things,make wrong choices, they really won’t learn. I hope I can survive this : –)
Now I’m not really sure what I am supposed to do with myself, so maybe I’ll get the living room painted and the patio done. I can do all that without interruption… or I can just relax. We’ll take it day by day.
