30 Words :: Take the Wheel

Cal in the Bucky-Mobile with his Mima, 1999

In the blink of an eye
you went from
my baby boy
to a handsome 
young man
ready to
take the wheel 
and navigate
your own
winding road.

Cal and Sydney, Homecoming 2013
My baby boy turned 16 a few weeks ago. This Friday he takes his driver's test. He is a good driver and I have great confidence in him. And I am starting to be ready to let him navigate his own adventure while still having a port to call home. He is definitely going places, I am sure of that. And I am enjoying the ride...literally and figuratively!


The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...

Take an image (preferably one you shot, or have permission to use).

Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.

Post it each Thursday.

Add your link to the InLinkz on my 30 Words Thursday post.

Aww what a darling photo. They do grow up so fast don't they. I know you must be a proud mama.

And looking at the links I just realized my husband and I posted about the same thing....our daughter.

It's crazy how fast they grow up! Good luck to both of you as you navigate this new stage.
