I'm in the middle of end-of-semester craziness, but couldn't let this day pass without noting it.
Today's milestone has been sneaking up on me--more quickly this year (at least it felt that way), and especially quickly in the last couple of weeks.
This is me and my son reflected in the bathroom mirror; we're both standing in our stocking feet:
The photography is not so great (well, I was on my way out the door to a faculty meeting and in a hurry), but the thing to notice is that he is as tall as me. At 12 years old! I didn't expect that to happen for a few years yet!
I'm glad he's healthy and happy and growing well. And, of course, this is also a bittersweet moment.
Hope you feel tall today!
