So my son is about to turn 11.
And yesterday – the last week really – has been the most interesting array of moments. He’s right on the cusp, between being a child and being a pre-teen. But he’s been pinging back and forth, sometimes reminding me he’s still a kid and sometimes seeming like a new person. It’s amazing watching them transition; their little systems are updating before our eyes.
Things that have happened in the past TWO days:

(2) Ezra rode the kiddie train made of little jeeps.
(3) Ezra walked around looking like this:
(6) Ezra had innumerable tea parties with me at the bottom of the pool and gave me kisses.
This is my life now. And I love it.
