My Diamonds Dancing

My child, Shef, is getting older.  It's stunning.  If we stand side-by-side, the top of his head is even with my cheek bone.  And he's funny - quick with the witticism or sarcastic come-back.  He makes his own plans and asks for rides to places.

Last night, he dressed up for dinner out.  When we got home, I noticed him leaning against the counter in the kitchen, casually scrolling through Instagram, his collared shirt tucked into slim black trousers, and I was just struck by his good looks.  Total moment of maternal pride.

"Shef!" I said, beaming.  "You're so handsome!"

"Yeah," he said, smiling. "I know."

It seems that in addition all of this other fabulous traits, kid has a healthy dose of confidence.  I suppose I'm glad.

That's a lovely moment of recognition that he is becoming a young man....and a very handsome one too! There will be others...treasure then! Love, mom

I kind of wanted a pix of him leaning against the counter even though I could picture it in my mind.
