Eleven Years Today



The boy child is turning eleven today. Eleven years of being a parent and it always seems to be in a new phase. We bought him a bow and arrow for his birthday and he's walking around the house with his cape and quiver (He doesn't really have a quiver. I just thought it sounded good.). He has entered what I am going to call his Percy Jackson Phase. It is apt just because my son has some serious demons to battle now that prepubescence is upon us and although it is hard for me to watch, he is a beauty. I hope the bow and arrow has some magical properties. That it becomes a manga pen and will return to the spot behind his left ear whenever it's lost(like Percy's Riptide).  And then he could also use it to draw. I hope we have given him what he needs.

As Always(thinking of you, Karlene),

P.S. Times, they are busy. Kids out of school and my house will be full with 2 sisters, 1 niece, 1 nephew, 1 brother in law, 1 mother and 1 Bill, 1 son, 1 daughter and 1 husband. Fun and chaotic and sporadic posting. Maybe I will be here before the end of the year (I hope so), more likely I won't. Wishing you all houses filled with loved ones AND time for writing!
