My baby is growing up!
I am pretty meloncholy these days. My firstborn child is turning 18 next month. That isn't the saddest thing on earth, but where did my sweet little boy go? I never imagined that those days of plastic swords and spiderman costumes would be replaced by a grumpy and mean young man whom I no longer know. JT and I were so close as he grew up. He was so easy to raise. Never a bit of trouble. I feel as though I gave im the best childhood any kid would hope for. He went on many trips to Disneyland, Disneyworld and Hawaii. I bought him every toy he wanted. He was a precious adorable little boy with blond curly hair and dimples. I have always been there for him. I have always been his friend. I have done absolutely everything to give him a truly happy life. Now my little boy is a teenager. He will be graduating from high school this year. I have definitely noticed a change in his attitude. He treats me like absolute crap. The way you would treat somebody you cannot stand. I do not understand this at all. We do EVERYTHING for this kid. We even allowed him to bring his girlfriend with him on our recent family vacation to Disneyland. What parents allow that sort of thing? I mean really? I am not asking for a pat on the back......but what did I do to deserve to be resented like this? It is as if he abhores my existence. What everhappened to honor thy mother and thy father? Well, I hate to say it, but he has his father wrapped around his 'lil finger and I have no place in this kids heart. And he is breaking mine...................
