Help! I Can't Find My Bitty Baby!

Fourteen years ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy and this weekend he put on a suit and broke my heart.

I didn't see it coming but when I watched Michael looking so handsome in his suit with a beautiful girl on his arm something in my heart broke into a million pieces.  This was my bitty baby boy standing there.  This was the child that I had to buy an over sized chair for because he refused to sit anywhere other than with me. My sweet little toddler had morphed over night into a man and somehow I had missed it.

I am so proud of the man he is becoming. He is smart, kind and funny.  He still loves his mom and isn't afraid to admit it to his friends.  What more could a mother ask for?  All I can ever possible ask for is a little more time.  More time to enjoy him and be with him and be amazed at the man he is becoming.

I have been on this road through high school before with Ashley and I know that the time passes with lightning speed.  I just want to slow it down.  I want to freeze the quiet moments we have together driving in the car or talking before bedtime.  I want to go back to Batman pajamas and bedtime stories.  Is there a magic potion for that?

Yes there is a potion for it! It is inside his Dora the explorer backpack...or was that Zach's...and his was Buz Lightyear? LOL
