It’s a curious feeling, the moment you discover that your offspring is taller than you. Genius Brat and I noticed yesterday for the first time. So strange to see my little boy gradually turn into a man, yet still so far from really being one, and still dependent on me and needing guidance from me (not to mention pocket money, shopping, cooking, washing and all the other stuff I do for him).
Next milestone: when his feet are bigger than mine? (I suspect they already are and that he urgently needs new shoes); when he starts shaving? when he stops having spots? Perhaps when he gets taller than his dad – but he’s got a way to go yet on that one.
