I try not to be all sentimental and mushy. I hate sappy feelings. But when it comes to my children....well, sometimes that glob of melty emotions can not be helped.
Take yesterday for instance. My son and husband returned victorious from their shopping trip....their clothes shopping trip. I knew that this would be one time that my husband would be a better guide then me, for picking out pants and shoes, because these special items are actually for our son's first job.
He needed tough working pants and serious work boots. When he came home, he opened his box to show me the new boots and I was surprised. Those boots are huge! Man sized! How on earth are they going to fit my little guy?
Perfectly, it turns out.
Sometimes, it is hard to believe the the tiny, baby foot that I could cup in my hand is ready to head off to a job, work boots and all, driving a car no less!
