Today is a big day at our house. Parker passed the test to get his driver's permit. I truly wasn't sure whether to be happy or to break down in tears and to ask the nice man at the DMV to rip it up. Tomorrow I will take him driving, but not in my car. But that is another post.
Anyway, we should document these big events. So here goes.
This is the patronizing smile. Available at almost any age, but particularly popular with teenage boys.
One of my favorite "things" about Parker is his voice. It is very low. I get the gigs every time I listen to the message on his cell phone because he made it about 2 years ago and he sounds like a little kid! He definitely has a man voice now and he sings bass in one of the choirs at school.
OK. So pictures of baby feet are way more adorable, but the fact is that babies grow up and that is definitely what has happened at my house. But, I wouldn't have it any other way. Parker's wry sense of humor, ability to do difficult tasks, and growing sense of responsibility are way better than baby toes. And diapers.
Love ya, Parks!
