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!


  1. Holy moly!!!
    I feel short. But, I also feel good.

  2. OMG, Karen, what a GREAT picture of the two of you... good for you for noticing and recording the moment. :)

  3. Wow. That's a HUGE milestone! It's actually an interesting photo, as your shirts are similar in color and your coloring and his seem very similar as well.
