"Really, Mom?... Really?"

This is the face of a teenage boy who is changing so fast I can barely keep it recorded on film. He is always away, running track, hanging with friends up the road, or sledding down snowy hills. I have few opportunities to get candid shots of him.

So this day, when I was outside taking pictures of the sledding adventure, I snapped a few extra shots. And these are the words he said to me....

"Really mom? Really? You are taking pictures of me putting on my hat?? Really?"

Oh sweet boy, if you only understood how I take this picture because I can't seem to make my eyes see the almost-adult man face under that hat. All I can see are your six year old bright eyes and chubby cheeks.

Forgive your mom, just this once.

If you keep going I am going to cry. It's been a rough couple of days, but thinking about how fast it goes is making me emotional.

It's funny though, because I can't get out the camera without several little boys jumping at me saying "cheese."

I keep telling myself, "Don't blink, just don't blink."
