Ahhhh, 12, that strange age... not quite a teen, and yet no longer a "little kid". By dear Sagan turns 12 today. He has been looking forward to this year for awhile... because NEXT year he will be officially a teenager.
So strange, that rush to grow up when you are young. So much in a hurry to reach that next year, to be older, feel more in control of your own life, no longer tied down to parental rules. And yet, now that I am grown, what I wouldn't give to be younger again, and slow it all down and have time to just play and not worry about so many things all the time.
My hope for my dear boy who is in such a hurry to grow up, is a slow, lazy, fun year of discovery, adventures, dirt, bike rides, movie watching, hanging out at the park, pancake breakfasts on Sundays, "bro time" with Logan in the evenings, and still being cuddled occasionally by your mama.
Happy Birthday Sagan.
