As I was putting Ben to bed tonight, I looked and him and he just seemed humongous to me. Like he was this monstrous person, hardly a child any longer. It was just a split second and then it passed. Almost like a small glimpse into the future.
"Ben, when did you get to be so big? You're just growing up so fast!"
He looked at me and thought for a bit. And then started to say something I was sure to be a deep profound statement sure to be a moment where we would feel connected and cherished as mother and son.
"And.... and... I was a BIG RED CHICKEN!"
And so you are Ben. So. You. Are.
