Growing Pains

There's growing pains,
And then there are growing pains.

The slight bump of new life
The twinges and aches as parts of you move
To accommodate parts of him
Stretching, swelling, expanding
Until you think you'll pop

Yet that can't compare to
The wrenching tugs on your heart
Watching your beloved baby
Now so grown up and determined
Jumping head first
Without looking, without blinking, without pause

There's growing pains.....
And then there are growing pains.

Inspired by prompt #2 at Mama's Losin' It!


  1. Beautiful post. Hate that you are going through this.

  2. It can be painful watching them make mistakes as they grow and learn, but those mistakes are life's most powerful lessons. And so we bite our tongues and hope for the best.~May
