A Day for the Record Books!

Today is a day for the record books in our family. Or maybe a day of acceptance...

Alex went to the dentist today for his cleaning. They always weigh and measure height at these appointments. I had to ask. I had to look at his report when he came out. It's official. He is 5 ft. 8 1/2 inches. He is 2 1/2 inches taller than me. I've pretty much known this for awhile since I, you know, live with him and all. And I see that he has outgrown his dress pants with only TWO concerts left in the year. But when it's in person, I can assume that I'm slouching or he's standing on his tip-toes or I'm seeing blurry-eyed from all the kitchen cleaning and cereal fixing. Now, however, there it is in ink! No denying it now. My firstborn has outgrown his mama. Just in time for Mother's Day!

You know what that means. I have to learn how to walk in 3-inch heels.
