We pulled into a Sonic Burger place and parked.
"Can I get out?" My 4 year old asks.
"Yes," My husband replies.
The 4 year old unbuckled himself and opened the door of the SUV and jumped out.
"He's four," the Husband reminds me.
Okay, yes, I know, but like, when did that happen and why so fast?
When did he learn how to do that? Not too long ago he was lying in his rear-facing car seat staring into a mirror wondering who that face was looking back at him.
Now he's looking in the rearview mirror back at me with a big grin while I'm driving.
"Hey Mom, Mom," he says. "I'm going to make a machine that takes all the shots [as in vaccinations] of the world and makes them disappear so we don't have to get them."
"Mom, mom. What would happen if a plane had no engine? What would happen to it?"
My baby - my precious middle son - is growing up...
My heart clenches.
