Where did my baby go?

There seem to be a multitude of things lately that remind me that my baby, my first born, is growing up. Just little things, that I may not have really even noticed before I consciously realized that he is going to be a 6th grader in middle school this next school year! A 6th grader?!?! How is it possible that I am a mother of a 6th grader?

For example, you wouldn't think that getting a new bike is a big deal right? In my emotional state - it is a huge deal! Jordan was getting WAY to big for his little 16" bike that we got him about 3 or 4 years ago. 3 or 4 years doesn't seem that long, right? Well, it was long enough for him to skip right past a 20" bike. So last Sunday we finally went out to the store and got him a new 24" bike.

He loves it, especially because he can do all the cool gear shifting and pedaling backwards stuff. I on the other have yet another reminder that my baby is growing up. What's next, a driver's license and a car?


  1. My son has jumped from an 18" to a 24" bike this summer as well. Quite a shock
