I am sure I should have realized this before but this week was eye opening. During my son's physical for boy scout camp he was of course measured and weighed. The weight wasn't an issue. It was the sudden realization he was just inches from being the same height as his dad. At 5'10" he already towers me at half a foot.
We will be going through several milestones the next 3 years - driving a car, getting a job, taking SATs, graduating, applying to college. Being this is our only child at this point in time it is kind of sad. At the same time I feel proud. Proud that we have done our very best to raise him to think for himself and make the right decisions about his future.
