    I'm impressed by my son's behavior sometimes.

    .. The other day there was a pile of clean towels that needed to be folded and he folded them with out saying a word or having to be asked to do it. Then today I told him I was going down to the road to bring up the garbage can as he sat and watched tv.... Then he ran outside and...

    My Son

    I'll always need my son no matter what age I am. My son has made me laugh, made me cry, made me proud. hugged me tight, seen me fall, seen me succeed, cheered me up and kept me going strong, and driven me crazy at times. He's not just a son but a friend that i'll have forever...

    Zeph. I love this kid.

    He's not mines but I sure treat him like he's mines. I meet him when he was about 8mths old. Thinking back to then still shocks me. I really don't like kids. He stole my heart though. When I started dating his mom I was scared outta my mind because I'd never been around kids...

    I have two sons...they are

    now 3 and 5. Being only 18 months apart they feed off each other and keep you on your toes. But I would not trade them for the world!! Their older sister would say something different about that idea though :)

    .. What have I done??? Just got back from helping my 12 year old son move in with his dad. I don't know what to do... I can't stand being home and seeing my sons things that he left behind. I miss my baby... I miss yesteryear. This hurts so bad.

    but he came on Oct 28 just four days after his father's 27th birthday. It was a difficult delivery, my water broke at 3 am and he wasn't both until 6 pm. 16 hours of labor, not dilating on my own and having to get pitocin which produced contractions from hell. 20+ stitches...
