I had today a reflection as a mum myself of a 11 years old. Didn't notice I had this fear of letting him to be on his own. Maybe I still couldn't get use to my baby away from my lap, I still want to carry my baby boy and hug him whenever I could. I had a fear and yet ignorance over the most talk-about phrase of "he will be out of sight when he turns teenage"
In a cuppa with my girlfriends just yesterday, I was bombard with "you need to let go".
Guess I have to take a step back and let the kite go a little further. He will be a man soon.
