Yesterday I backed my car into the driveway to clean it, inside and out. ODS (10) came out to help me. Several times he mentioned that he was embarrassed to be outside with him mom. I told him if he really felt that way he could go inside, but he stayed. It was like he'd have been embarrassed if any of his friends had come by, but he really enjoyed working side-by-side with me.
Seeing that internal conflict just really brought it home to me how fast he's growing up and how soon it'll be when he'll be off doing his own thing.
