Aidan is 12 today. Twelve means a few things- a cell phone and riding in the front seat of the car. One year away from being a teenager, four years from getting his learners permit. I can’t believe he is 12- where have the years gone? Aidan has become a compassionate, funny, caring young man. I love talking to him and watching him figure things out. I love how excited he gets about silly puns and how much he concentrates trying to teach himself something on the piano. He becoming a great young man and someone I genuinely love spending time with. As he’s getting older, I’ve had to ask more what is ok to post on social media and share with others. I get a lot of “seriously Mom.” But every once in a while he lets me share how proud I am of him. Like on his birthday.
