I am at a loss. Truly. Deeply. My baby boy is growing up. Sigh. I can’t believe how this all snuck up on me. My boy, my recently turned 12 tear old boy, has a changing voice. His voice us deepening. How did this happen? One day he was my baby crying without rhyme or reason. The next he’s talking to people while his voice deepens mid-sentence.
I, of course, go right ahead to thinking about the day he will leave home to explore his own life. I have to take a few breaths here and there to calm down my thoughts. He’s going to leave. One day. Oh my.
