Passage

Today was the last day,  I dropped Connor off at Drivers Ed.  In just short of a month he will take the Permit test at the Massachusetts RMV, and then about 6 months after that they will give my  baby a driver’s license.  Where the hell did the time go?  I am sure that he was really just 5 a few months ago,  how is he going to be 16 years old?  My mom told me to hold on tight to them and don’t wish their lives away.  Stop wishing for them to sleep the night, go to pre-school, kindergarten, graduate from elementary school,  go to middle school and then on to high school.  I wish I had listened. 
     Don’t get me wrong, I love both of my boys,  actually young men in their own rights.  I just sometimes miss the little boys they were at times.  The boys who came in covered in mud from the Wiles household to show me whatever they had made and what kind of mess they were covered in.  Those are memories I will cherish forever.
