Wordless Wednesday – a birthday boy #ww

My son’s birthday was last Thursday. He turned SEVENteen. I find it very strange to look at him and see someone who is so close to adulthood. I always expect to turn around and look into the smiling face a chubby cheeked 3 year old.

He is so not three anymore.

    Where does the time go? Mine is 3 now and I can’t even imagine her turning 17. I know it’s going to happen far sooner than I’m prepared for.

    Happy birthday to your son! I can relate to how you feel, having a daughter that’s 18 and one that’s 17 in my home. Time sure flies!

    Happy birthday! Though you almost made me cry, it’s so bittersweet to watch them grow up and my oldest is still only 8.

    omg, I know what you mean! It’s crazy to realize they’re not babies anymore. I love the new adult relationship with them, but oh how I’d love to start all over again!

    Happy Birthday to your son!
