I had originally planned to make a snarky comment about what a beautiful thing it is to have your teenage boy doing some of the heavy lifting around the house...
But looking at this boy now, all I can think of is his toddler-sized overalls, and his superhero cape and pirate sword, and how he only ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch every day for at least two (three?) years. The boy in the photo certainly doesn't let me dress him anymore, he text-messages girls on his cell phone, and has a preference for buffalo chicken subs and grilled salmon. When he was little, it never occurred to me that this would happen. And, it's bittersweet. But mostly, it's a beautiful thing.
