Twelve And Growing (162/365)

“It kills you to see them grow up.  But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't.”

Barbara Kingsolver,
Animal Dreams

TIME:  8:03 PM
PLACE:  Basement
SUBJECT:  MonkeyBoy

Here he is – 12 years old today.  His home gym is completely assembled and he has already made up a work-out routine.  *sigh* It makes me sad…on some of the photos I took this evening, I see my little boy, then in others, like the one above, I catch fleeting glimpses of the man he will become.

Although we raise our kids to grow up and be independent, but yet it's hard to see it happen!
Happy Birthday MB!
