Teenagers. Yesterday, I only had one. Today I have two.
How does the time go so quickly? I can still vividly recall minute details of the day Josh was born. How can there possibly be 13 years between then and now? How can I be mom to this man-child who is already nearly the size of his dad? Seriously, the kid is already 6 feet tall.
Sometimes he tries my patience and tests the ends of its limits, but he’s a good kid. Thoughtful. Sensitive. Musical. Intelligent. Inquisitive. Resourceful. Talented. Hands-on. Polite. Witty. Sarcastic. Loving. Funny. Mechanical. Unique. Christian.
Words that describe my boy. Happy 13th Birthday, Josh!
And, thank you, Lexercise, for this moment:
He didn’t stumble over a single word as he read his birthday card.
