Growing Up Fast

The name of this blog is Wild & Crazy Ride. I named it because it deals so much with the ups and downs of family life in my house. It seems like just yesterday my oldest son was asking for Yugi-oh cards and Game Boy games, and now he's asking for MP3 players and Cell Phones.

It's not that he's too young for this kind of stuff to be intriguing, he'll be 11. I'm just wondering where the past 5 years went! They seemed to have whipped by in no time at all. Soon he'll have no interest in the new things, and be more worried about borrowing the car keys and borrowing money for dates.

It's nothing new that our kids grow up so fast, but it is new to me. I'm just not quite ready to see him heading off to college just yet!
