Pre-Teen

Well, he's definitely a pre-teen.  He doesn't want to cut his hair, loves playing video games, doesn't want to go anywhere with the family, his friends are cooler than mom and dad and so much more.

This year was a date year for BH.  So we got to have him all to ourselves.  It was so much fun.  We took him to Flemings for dinner (guess who's idea that was?, I'll give you a hint, not mine), took him to get a hair cut, we bribed him with an XBox game and went to get ice cream.

I've always been terrified of the pre-teen/teen years cause that's when you start to have less and less control, they are away from you more and they are learning who they are and how to be more independent.  What I realized on our date with BH is how much fun it's gonna be too.  We laughed, played and had great conversation.  I'm really excited for more of that in the coming years.  Thanks for the great date BH we love you and who you are becoming.
