My baby will be 16 you have a 16 yr old grown-up in your house?

Dd and I measured ds last night, we have this growth chart thingy. He is the same height, maybe its his hair, curly and ready for a haircut. I was looking at his baby pics tonight,,,seems like yesterday I was holding him in my arms. I have to look way up to him now cause he towers above me at over 6ft. Its crazy fast how time goes ladies,,

  • My son will be 16 in 15 days...he towers over me too at 6ft. I can remember exactly what it was like to hold him and smell him when he was is so sad sometimes to see them grow up and how close they are to leaving home. At the same time it gives me a feeling of pride to know what a good job I've done. Just bitter sweet.

  • All of mine have grown up. It happened in a blink. My baby is 18 and leaves for college in 16 days and my 19yo left for Army basic training almost 2 weeks ago. My older 2 are 22 and 23.
