Another Teenager in the Wood House


This is my new 15 year old!


His crew of friends came over to celebrate with pizza and cake.


Can't believe my baby is in a tux!


New teenager!


Officially half of our sons are teens!


Connor celebrated his day at a Pacers game!

I've always heard the expression, "The days are long, but the years are short."  I believe this quote primarily applies to motherhood.

For years, I was knee-deep in diapers and baby food.  Then, before I had a chance to protest, I'm knee-deep in hormones and acne.

Time stand still.

It was birthday weekend for the Woods.  Our two older sons have birthdays within a day of each other.  (We really should have thought that through!)  Both birthdays fell on the weekend.

This birthday weekend felt monumental.  Caleb is now 15 years old.  He has reached the age where he can attain a learners permit.  Driving is within his near future.

Connor is 13 years old.  He's a teenager, in every sense of the word.  Toy trucks and legos are no longer part of his world.  Sports, friends, and phones dominate his thinking.

Half of our sons are now teenagers.

I've become a teenage boy mom.

This fact has caused me to rethink my role.  

Gone are the days where I'm cutting up food into little bites.  Now I am purchasing and preparing food....all the time.  I'm no longer putting little ones to bed, but desperately wanted to put myself to bed while teenage boys are still going strong.  I'm monitoring iPhones, and not playdates.

I pray the next amount of days don't move too fast.  The years these boys are remaining in the house are short.  This fact I know from experience.
