OMGosh, today our middle son is 13 years old.
What a difference a year makes! He's now taller than me and inching his way to his father's height which is over 6ft. His interests have changed and went from loving & playing soccer to playing football and basketball. Engrossed with text messaging and all rock songs from the past with the popularity of Rock Band and Guitar Hero games.
I made the mistake recently of calling him sweet pea in front of his friends and they still call him that when I'm around ~ he is my sweet pea though and of all my boys he and I are like two peas in a pod - so much alike. (which can be a good or bad thing depending on the situation).
We're enjoying a nice Chinese dinner with my younger sister and her family & we'll have cake for my brother in law as well ~ who had a birthday earlier in the month.
Have a great weekend.
