Last week my oldest turned 11.
Depending on the day I would tell you this hardly seems possible, but other days. Yeah. It does. This boy who has always been even tempered and happy, has hit a certain stumbling block in his life. He’s hit puberty!! Most of the time he’s still even tempered and happy, but when the pendulum swings, watch out! I know it’s a phase he has to go through, we all do, but watching it from a mother’s point of view is so much more different than I ever imagined. I guess if I think about it, I never thought about what this phase of my children’s lives would be like! I just pray that I can be the mom he needs to help him though this time when he doesn’t know how he feels, and he doesn’t know why he doesn’t know! I look forward to this coming year with him and all the mood swings that are sure to come, because before I know it, it’ll be over.
In honor of 11 years of life, I asked Fred what his top 11 favorite things are:
- Video Games
- New DS
