mommy & BoyI watched my son shave yesterday.  There isn’t a huge amount of scruff on his face, although his upper lip does accumulate a fair amount of hair.  He doesn’t shave daily, nor does he need to.  Shaving for him doesn’t take long.  Just a few quick swipes and he’s done.

So why did I watch this rather uninteresting activity?  Because today my little boy turned 15.  I was feeling sentimental, watching my little 5 lb. 14 oz. jaundice baby doing something so grown-up.  He will be learning to drive soon.  He has a girlfriend.  He talks about plans after high school…Where did the time go?

This boy-man has gone from being the only child of a couple who overcame infertility to the oldest sibling of five kids.  Because of him, I am a mother. He has been a joy to me and my husband through every stage of his life.  I will be the first to admit I am not a perfect mother.  But I am the mother that God thought would be perfect for him, and for that I am thankful.
