I wrote these posts in advance to chronicle the days of this mom’s little boy getting engaged. The engagement was a surprise, so I’ll be posting this week what led up to the big moment. It was a special journey! However, itt seems like yesterday we were capturing his growth on his bedroom wall (HERE).
Snips and snails
and puppy dog tails
. . . that’s what little boys are made of.
If I could keep my son little . . . somedays I would, others day I wouldn’t trade watching him grow into a man for nothing. And since keeping him little is not going to happen, I have to tell you . . .
My son and I photographed a wedding together one evening. We had a good hours drive on the way home and it was a great night for visiting, if I could keep my eyes open. After a moment of silence he began, “Mom, that’s the kind of wedding my girl and I are going to have.”
Blurry eyed I turned towards him, “What?”
And there begin the first of many conversations about the engagement and marriage of my little boy. I’m thankful he wanted to share the journey with me. That way it gives this poor mom’s emotions time to sink in. Maybe if I cry a lot now, I won’t cry on the big day. Well, maybe?
I’m not sure how all this works. This young man is the first of my three to get engaged or married. I need suggestions. I need advice. I need help! Anybody want to share?
The journey will be exciting. I love his girl. They compliment each other perfectly. It’s just that . . .
Somewhere along this journey my little boy has grown in to . . . a man!
