With 2013 drawing to a close, my son is taking great delight in declaring 2014 ‘his year’. It’s the year that the label of tween gets retired and he launches into full-blown teenager status. I don’t know what he thinks is going to happen when he turns 13 – it’s not like he can start dating (not yet!!!!) or go to a bar or vote.
And he definitely can’t drive a car, as evidenced by the majority of texts exchanged between us. Like I’d ever NOT pick him up, but it’s always nice to be asked. . . .
And in a few short years when he gets his driver’s license this too will end, and I wonder what he’ll be asking me for then – but I hope I still get an occasional one of these. . . .
Wishing everyone a happy and blessed 2014!
