Egads. Today, I am the mother of a teenager. The handsome devil below is now THIRTEEN YEARS OLD!!!! How in the heck does that happen? He, of course, would be mortified to know I had posted this picture, but since he doesn't check in at the ole blog I think I am safe. Not to mention the fact that he is now taller than me with brown locks, therefore unrecognizable today. One part of my heart hates to see him grow up and away, but that's the deal. I am proud of who he is becoming and enjoy how our relationship is different now that he's growing up. And I am glad that he still wants his mom to make his favorite cake for his birthday. (Do we ever grow out of that?) So I am off to bake, Coca Cola cake anyone?
