52 Inches

Enjoy this moment, it won’t last….

Last night I took Demetrius to choir (Kim’s still recovering from bronchitis) at the church and they measured him at 52 inches.  Just another one of those moments as a parent where you say to yourself…holy cow!  When did you get over 4 feet tall? 

Then you start going through the thoughts of how fast childhood is, blink of the eye, yada-yada…you know, sentimentality sets in for a brief time.

Just a brief moment, because as soon as they told him there was no actual rehearsal, just the measurement, and he understood he got to leave, he turned and asked me:

“Do I still get a special dessert tonight from Quik-Trip?”

We are way past that baby boy phase now.
