Approaching the One-Oh

I was looking at an old blog post of mine this morning. A post (when I actually had more readers) that I'd written about infertility, and wanting baby #2...and it brought us back 8 years and to bad outfits in San Fran ... but I digress. It brought me back to my little cherub.

As we approach 2010, I realize that it will be the year that my baby boy turns 10.

No longer baby, all boy, and approaching young manhood. He loves playing soccer, he loves playing tennis, he snowboards, he break dances, he wears a cool toque, a checked shirt, tartan-lined hoodie, skinny jeans with holes at the knees and his high top Converse ... all this at an age when I was getting my first blackheads. And he's incredibly sweet and good-natured (when he's done his daily harassment of his younger sister ritual).

"How many girls in your class hate you now?" I asked him this morning as I plated his breakfast (and by plated, in case you think I'm getting fancy, I mean, slopped his omelette on...).

"Uh, pretty much all of them."

Which in real terms means that we're in big trouble come Valentine's Day.

You will still have a melting heart even when they are 30 years old. It is just the Mom in us.

Oh my! Adding that second digit is big time.

If he thinks the girls don't like him, probably means they all DO. Good luck to both of you.

Yep. You're in trouble. For sure.

And I think it's time to update the blog header, eh?

I never had to raise a boy. I don't know whether to be glad or sad. He sounds like an amazing kid.
I wonder if boys have bad hair days?

Tooj said...

OH NO KAREN! Please tell me you don't let him wear those crazy skinny jeans!!!!! I can't understand it, and I think I might have to force my children to live outside if they try them on. (Don't they hurt boys' "stuff"???)

But, on the other hand, he's adorable and I agree. Come V-Day, you're in trouble. :)

Kat said...

Ten is a big one. Wow! And man, is that kid CUTE! Big trouble come VDay. :)

Badness Jones said...

10! Gah! And I thought 6 was bad...but she'll be 7 this year, won't she? I really have to embrace more of the joy they bring, because man do these children grow up fast.

Happy New Year!

Don't we just love our children and they grow up before our eyes. A wonderful story about your son, and they all grow up with a personality of there own. I couldn't help but smile when I read what you wrote. How cute, and he is a cutie also.
