There is something WIERD going on in this house…
Its happening with Ezekiel.
My sweet, sweet firstborn son is GROWING.
I’m not sure how to explain it except that he’s CHANGING!
He is normally very even headed and DIPLOMATIC.
But LATELY….he is SOOOOOO emotional.
And when I say EMOTIONAL…I mean EMOTIONAL!!!
Like “Freak out for no reason” emotional.
He seems to go from 0 to 100 in about a half second!!!!!
On Thanksgiving afternoon we were all ready to eat and we were making the kids plates.
It was Zeeks’ turn….
I said, “Give me your plate and walk with me…Ill make your plate.”
His NORMAL RESPONSE would have been “OK”.
But that day…..His response was, “Mom, I am 9 years old…I should be able to make my own plate. Why can’t I make my own plate? I WANT TO MAKE MY OWN PLATE…I’M 9 YEARS OLD!”
AND he was CRYING…..
I was SHOCKED.
WHO WAS THIS CREATURE???
And WHY was he CRYING?
I said…”Zeek, Stop crying. You can make your own plate, Son.”
Jay and I had already started to “notice” that SOMETHING was going on.
Sometimes he just has been having “EMOTIONAL” days.
“Cry about everything for NO REASON” days.
“Everyone is bothering me” days.
“Why do I have ALL the responsibility” days.
It is strange…all these changes are SPEEDING by way too fast.
Wasn’t it just this morning we were LEARNING our ABC’s?????
Wasn’t it JUST yesterday that I was changing diapers and nursing????
Wasn’t it JUST last week that I was taking a pregnancy test….or 4????
Wasn’t it JUST last year that we were in LOVE , selling burritos in the rain in Costa Rica with NO CHILDREN YET????
Apparently Zeek was born 9 YEARS AGO and is CHANGING ….
He CHANGING and NO AMOUNT of NOT WANTING HIM TO will change THAT.
Pray for me……I think I’m going to need it!!!!!
Blessings and Love…
