Blog Slackah and a MiniWarrior Moment

Yes, I realize that I've become a dreadful blog slacker.

I do have an excuse though!

I maintain 3 blogs now so its hard to update them all every day.

If you don't know which other ones they are (yet)
(photoblog where I put images Chanda captures) (a photoblog where I put all pics taken with my iPhone of the city Portland where I work)

Now for other news...

I was riding bikes with MiniWarrior up and down our street the other day. He has officially out grown a little kids bike and now rides a 22 speed mans bike. (sigh).

We got to the top of the hill at the end of the street and before I could give my usual Mom admonishment of "look out for cars"... he paused and looked seriously at me.

"Mom, when I ring my bike bell, that means that you need to look out for cars, OK?"

"Good idea, Son. I'll ring mine if I see one too."

"No, Mom. I'll do it. You leave it to me. I'll protect you."

I looked at my not so little man staring across at me with adult eyes and felt a melting and a twinge inside me.

God, he's growing up before my eyes

I find myself clinging to each childhood moment with him now for they are swiftly disappearing into the wonderful man he is becoming.
