When your ten year old son hangs around you; it's nice to know he enjoys your company.
Lately, A.R has been spending a lot of time with me. If I'm at my desk, he'll be sitting in my husband's chair, playing Nintendo. If I'm watching a movie, he'll be snuggled next to me. If I'm reading, he'll be close by.
I can't believe this is from someone who didn't want to hold my hand, give me a hug and a kiss in public! He's content to be with the boys - his father and younger brother. And talk about animation, Roblox, and the latest toys and gadgets.
Nowadays, A.R is more open and affectionate. He tells me about his day at school, asks me to play Nintendo, and to listen to him play guitar. Oh, I must be dreaming!
Does this mean I'm cool again?
I hope so.
In a few more years, he'll be a teenager. I don't even want to know what I'll be then.
