In March I went to a bar mitzvah. The boy looked like - well, himself. Your standard 13 year old. Baby fat still clinging to him, more child than teenager, shorter than me. Normal. And I've watched this boy grow up. I've known him since he was 8 days old.

He went to camp this summer. He just came back.

I didn't recognize him. He's. Tall. And the baby fat is gone. And his voice had changed.

*Still in shock*


It happens remarkably fast. I remember being away at college one semester and coming back and calling my cousin's house. My younger cousin answered and I thought he was his older brother. It completely stunned me. He sounded all growed up.

Isn't it freaky when they do that? I don't recognize my cousins. I used to feed them a bottle and now they are taller than I am!

Btw - I would love to reread your "Beautiful Boy" but can't seem to find the link. Would you be able to give it to me?

The three year old getting his first haircut and the bar mitzvah boy coming home from summer camp I think generally mark two of the biggest insta-changes in a boy...

You and hubby are cordially invited to Shabbat Sheva Brachot, for lunch. We'll be davening at the Young Israel of Avenue J. Lunch will probably be upstairs in the shul.

email me with the date?

We'd be honored, of course.

Ah, puberty.
