My son just turned 10 this month, which means I have been a parent for that long.
I just had to pause for a moment to let that sink in.
My husband rocked his father’s hat and planned a huge Halo Wars party, complete with a Training Mission, a “fill up your own bag” candy bar, and Dye Wars Battle.
Side Note…. Squirt Guns+White T-shirts+Many Bottles of Red and Blue food coloring+the wild abandon of 8 ten year old boys running amuck=Dye Wars.
I have never seen that many boys running around with that much food coloring on their person. Needless to say, though the parents were forewarned, they looked a little shocked at the deep blue and vibrant red hands their boys were sporting. 🙂
The sound of my sweet boy squealing like a girl (don’t tell him I said that) and continuously hugging his dad was all the thanks I needed. T3 is one of the most kindhearted, loyal, faithful and sarcastic 10 year olds I have ever known. I say this every year, but I am so proud of him…and delight that God ordained him a Tolson and we get to spend a lifetime loving on that kid.
