solo time with sol

He graduated today. Well, it's not really a graduation, more like a farewell because his school only goes up until Grade 5. Now he's off to the big kids' school and *sigh* big boy is getting bigger and bigger everyday.

I couldn't be prouder and happier and mushier! He makes me happy, this first pure love of mine named after a king.

The 'king' requested for a special solo time with his mom and baba. At the breakfast table this morning, he realized that he was going to have Jack and I to himself all through the day. So he said to me over his untouched cereal bowl - he was too excited to eat -

"Mom, since I'm graduating today and it's just you and Baba invited (gym space issues) can the three of us go out for lunch...because I never get to be alone with you much..."

And here's where this mommy melts into a puddle of goo.

Seems like only yesterday...

And more tears. HAPPY, joy*full slowly realizing how old I really am!
