I walked him out to the bus, and one he got on, 4 girls turned around immediately to talk with him. HOW DID HE GET SO BIG? AND WHERE DID HE GET ALL THAT "GAME"???? hahaha
I stood in the driveway as the bus pulled away thinking that my little baby boy is long gone, all that I have now is this bigger boy searching for his way in this world and I am merely a guide along the way.
It hurts folks...and at the same time it's wonderful that he can be so independent. It doesn't ease the pain inside my heart that my boy is no longer the little guy that wanted nothing more than to sit near me and cuddle. At least I can console myself with the fact that I have about 11 years before he graduates and I become an empty-nester...and I have my girls and this little guy due in Jan. There is hope! I didn't plan to hold onto him forever, just a little longer than this!
