Today at the bus stop, it was a brisk 46 degrees. Jude was wearing his favorite sweater, but it wasn't enough. He was cold and shivering. So, like any good mother, I grabbed him close and held him next to me, trying my best to keep him warm until the bus arrived.
After about 15 seconds, Jude pushed me away and said, "Stop, mom...my friends are watching!"
So, my baby is gone. He's been replaced by a big kid, the kind that doesn't want to snuggle with his mom in public.
So, today, my heart was broken, and the realization that my kid is growing up way to fast slapped me in the face. Again!
