Well, I knew the day would come, but I didn't think it would happen so quickly. It was in the blink of an eye.

In the time it takes to give someone a hug.

He's been so attached to me for the past year or so, that I forgot that there would be a day when he wouldn't be quite as attached as he was the day before (or the minute before.)

Or that there might be a time when he chooses to go to someone else instead of me. (O say it isn't so...I'm not ready for that time yet!)

What I hadn't counted on was the power and lure of Grandma. All the hugs and kisses and attention - what mom can compete with that?

It took all of 5 minutes when we got to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Jesse to switch his allegiance from me to Grandma. *sigh*

I knew it would happen sometime.

I just hoped he would be 25 or 30 when I was dethroned...

It happens to the best of us! :) Maybe that means it's time for another one???
