Josh is almost as tall as me. Sometimes in middle school, you want to be the kid who bulks up first. Of course, I think he is as adorable as ever. He tells me I have to say that because I am his mom. But I am telling you, even if I wasn't his mom, I would think he was a super great, sweet, really handsome kid. I was having one of those annoying mom moments, telling him how I remember when he was so little I could carry him.
He responded, very dryly, "Well I maybe taller, but I probably weigh the same as I did back then."
I keep reminding him, it is a blessing to be able to eat 15 cookies and not gain a pound!
