Last night something happened that really hit me hard.
My 11 year old son asked if he could make a CD for someone. That someone being his little "girlfriend" Emma. The girlfriend stuff is starting too early for me. I know it's completely innocent in the 5th grade but why is he making a gift for another girl and not his Momma! I actually thought it was cute and sad all at the same time. There was a time when all he thought about was what he was going to make me for Valentine's Day. I was his best girl. Guess I have to let him grow up sometime....just not too fast. He's still so young and sweet. It was a good idea - I just wish he would make me one too! He does have more songs on his ITouch than I have on my little Ipod Shuffle.
Do you see what's wrong with this picture? I have a measly Ipod Shuffle while my 11 year old has an ITouch that he can text message from and load 8 gigs of "stuff" onto. And... he actually bought the ITouch all by himself. He saved and saved until he finally had the money to buy it. It was a good moment of victory for him.
Guess he is growing up. Buying his own electronic doodads and making CD's for girls. What's next?!
