When my sister called to wish my teenage son a happy birthday this afternoon (yes, he’s officially a TEEN!), she commented that she couldn’t get over the voice on the other end of the phone. She was expecting a boy, but a man’s voice answered her. When did her sweet little nephew start sounding like a man?
He surpassed me in height months ago, and is narrowing in on dad’s height now. By this time next year, he’ll be taller than dad for sure.
I take that back. He’ll be taller than his dad before the school year ends.
He’s growing faster than I ever expected (and if he hasn’t hit his growth spurt yet, I can’t imagine how tall this kid is going to be!).
Today, my he brought home his 7th grade report card. Straight A’s.
We’re kind of proud of him.
Because of schedules, we ended up spreading the birthday celebrations throughout the entire week. I’m convinced that every birthday should be that way.
Despite the fun of T-man’s birthday and homemade cake and giving gifts, though, I’m ready for a nice relaxing weekend.
PS – the cake was exceptionally good. I made up this new frosting and added chocolate chips to the cake batter. Sounds like the perfect breakfast for tomorrow morning, don’t you think?
What have you been up to this week?
