Seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the day he joined us.
He's gone from being my beautiful boy (MBB), to my striking young man (MSYM), to my handsome young cadet (MHYC). I guess he could now be my teenager grandson (MTG), or perhaps my most special teenager (MMST), but he plans to remain a cadet for some years to come so that moniker will, I hope, last through the teenage years. (Truth be known, in my heart, I still think of him as my beautiful boy!)
Wherever life takes him, he'll always have one of the very softest spots in my heart!
