children are wretched

*


change is on the wind.

recently thehobbit filled a mess of bags with things i don't need anymore. in poking through them i discovered nearly every toy he owns. it broke my heart to see all he'd cast aside. this doesn't come as a total surprise; a few months back he gave me his pirate ship, castle, & collection of wooden swords to pack away for elfling. since, there has been a trickle of items added to the pile. but this latest, this was him telling us he is done with a part of his life.

often these days i see him slouching, wearing headphones, his mp3 player stuck in his pocket, a slight scowl on his face. to me that seems such a teen thing, & that is the very thing sucking the air from my lungs: teen. in just 5 short months my firstborn will be one of those walking bewilderments. wow.

lately, at gatherings, i've been watching thehobbit & his friends. their play has taken on a more hanging out feel to it, they are all nearing my height (or have passed it), & all of them only slightly resemble the kids i've known for so many years.

all of this proves what i have always said: children are wretched.

~peace.

Children ARE wretched. I haven't even seen my 17 year old since yesterday afternoon. He did text me to tell me he's alive, that's nice. :(

Oh Kat, I have a very slight idea of what you're going through... Parenting is the hardest job!

As for today I enjoyed every ages of my kids' life (even if days are sometimes very long) but after reading you, I'm not sure to look forward for this one anymore. This is so disappointing.

My son is officially a teen in 4 months but has been practicing for the last couple of years. I dread 'the bag'. There are a lot of wonderful things about this stage... I'll let you know when I find out what they are ;)

By the time they're ready to leave home, you'll be glad they're going. He's just getting you ready.

only joking.
or not.
