Where did the time go?
He's a little boy
holding grains of sand...
and he is big enough to hold his granddaddy's fishing pole...
and it's a girl's hand that he now holds.
My nephew, my sister's son,
was born when my daughter
was a high school senior.
He was the first baby in
my immediate family in 16 years.
So, he's our heart!
Fast forward 14 years
and he's almost grown.
but secure in his own skin.
I asked him what the others guys were wearing.
"Aunt Bonnie, guys don't talk about that kind of thing."
You better believe the girls do!
It didn't bother him one bit
that he was dressed in khakis, a white shirt and tie,
while all the other guys were in a tux.
Didn't seem to bother her either!
Hey, who cares anyway!
Makes the limo ride more comfortable!
Yes, A LIMO, for an 8th grade Sweetheart Dance!
I wanted to know DETAILS!
I didn't get from him or his mom.
I did get from HER mom!
Her mom told me she came home so excited.
They talked til 2 in the morning!!!
Is she not a HOOT!
The conversation between my daughter
and my nephew...
(they were on my phone)
"Are you going to the dance?"
"Are you excited?"
(They had to reschedule for the ice storm.)
"Are you disappointed that they had to reschedule?"
"Is she pretty?"
(With a raised pitch in his voice)
Yes, all my babies are growing up.
