Thursday afternoon the grands arrived, all five of them at the same time! Chance was so excited!
We have a new tween, someone turned twelve. Someone who used to be a little boy and whose voice I could recognize in a crowd, whose laugh I could hear from a long ways off..has changed. There was this new deep voice, and a different laugh..and my grandma ears were confused. Who is this new person and what have they done to my grandson?
I didnâ€™t notice it when I talked to him on the phone..when we discussed his cake.. â€œHow about an ice cream cake when you come over on Thursday Noah?â€ He replied in his little boy voice, â€œSure Grandma that would be fine, but I donâ€™t like the frosting.â€ I said â€œNeither do I, we will scrape that part off and just eat the ice creamâ€ He said â€œgood dealâ€ ..there was no hint of a deep voice..I was clueless. He looks the same, well he might be a bit taller and a tad skinnier than the last time I saw him. The little boy is gradually disappearing.
A young man, with a deep voice has taken his place. I will just have to face the fact that he is growing up:)
