My son is becoming a young man and is now getting a little embarassed about me taking too many pictures. Like this morning, I brought him to school and while waiting for the teachers to allow everyone to board the school bus, he wouldn’t let me take his photos. Hence, the frowning selfie and the stolen shots.
Truthfully, I almost didn’t want him to go to this camping thing. It made me anxious that he would be in camp with his classmates and teachers for two nights and beyond my reach. But I couldn’t bear for him not to go when he was so excited and he felt that this was his first step to being independent.
So I calmed my anxiety and thought that this was for his growth and benefit. I missed him like crazy though.
