...this boy was just a little boy, sitting on my lap, asking me to "sratch (scratch) his bat (back)" while he fell asleep. Yesterday, he got contacts, and I feel like this seemingly small event is yet another thing making him into a young man. Its a reminder that we are always dropping pockets as parents. I love the young man he is becoming, but there are days when I miss that little boy. Its all a part of the journey, though.
