Last week was that time of the summer, again. My nephew stays with me every summer for a couple of weeks, and every year he is a different kid. I love figuring him out and catching up with no mom and dad. Just he and I.
The problem is that he is growing up.
In fact, a friend told me that I will probably only have
him for a
couple of more summers, at best. She thinks that he will choose his friends over me at 16. She even said he might choose a girl over me.
I was relieved that he still wanted to take our annual trip to the Science Center. We do the exhibits, the planetarium and the IMAX…every time. I will be totally honest though, this is my favorite part. Erosion.
Cause I see this…
So, I will take whatever time he gives me. I just look forward to this time of the year.
