my oldest ds turned 13 yesterday!!

he's a great guy - smart, empathic, funny, sweet, pedantic!

he's been on a bedroom-organising binge and has tossed out lots of kiddie stuff, and passed things on to his little brothers

the occasion seemed like a good time to discuss some issues - ds2 (6yo) brought up Respect! and so we now have a bunch of "how to respect eachother" ideas stuck up on the wall

now I must update my sig!

How fun! The milestones are so exciting! And it's nice to hear you talk so fondly about your ds. I don't like it when people bad mouth their teenagers.

thanks ladies, dh and I do tend to look at ds1 and think we haven't done too bad of a job

Congratulations to your ds!

My oldest will be turning into a teenager in 13 days. Amazing!
