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.

    I hope he had a great birthday! I’m freaking out about my daughter turning 4!

    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!

    WOW! Happy Birthday.

    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!

    Happy belated Birthday! Eesh. My oldest is 9 and life’s moving so fast already. I’m afraid to blink or he’ll be 17!

    Oh how time flies. I still can’t believe my own girls will be turning 8 and 12 within the next 2 months!

    Happy Birthday to him!!

    Happy Birthday! I know what you mean though. I have three, soon to be four teenagers in the house. :( They are growing up way too fast.

  19. 21

    Happy Birthday to him! I can feel the years going so fast, and my little ones are still little!
