    • You are right M-R; he is a young man, and the funny thing is, as I was writing the caption, I did think I might have to find a new name for him.

      But as Joanne says, he will always be MY child. I was talking to my mum yesterday and she still refers to my brothers (aged 51 and 45) as “the boys” and worries about the same things she’s always worried about on their behalf.

      Mine is having a tough time at the moment, and seems to be in need of a bit of mothering. Feels like the old days of his childhood sometimes.

      Anyway — hope the website development is going well. 🙂

      • He is certainly growing up, eh ? – in leaps and bounds. But he must by now be in that difficult period we keep reading about for young blokes; and that must be painful for the whole trio. You’ll win out in the end …

      • You’re spot on M-R. Things are pretty difficult at the moment; compounded by him having trouble finding work during this “gap” year. Lots of yelling and tear this weekend, but you’re right. We’ll get there in the end. 🙂

  1. I get it Su even if MR doesn’t. Regardless of how old our children become, they are still our babies ❤

    He is a handsome young man though. I love this photo – the guilelessness of youth shines 🙂

    • Thanks Joanne. It was lovely to spend a day with him. He drove us to a wee town north of Auckland for lunch, and we stopped at a beach on the way back. He hasn’t had much out of town driving practice and will be sitting his Restricted License soon. That made a perfect excuse for us to have a day together. 🙂

      • I found it so nerve-wrecking when my sons were getting their licenses. What a nice way to spend time together and give him practice time behind the wheel. Win-win!!

      • Thanks; I feel a bit sneaky these days finding ways of enticing him to spend some time with me. He is such good company and I know that with every passing month he is becoming more independent and that these lovely days of togetherness will be gone (to hopefully be replaced by something equally good, but unknowable at the moment). 🙂

  2. I love that he let you talk about him, and post his photographs on your blog. My son (now nearly 40) resents me speaking of him to anyone about anything he does – and that began when he was very young. I’m glad you are getting these moments to share during driving practice.

    • Thanks Christine. He’s managed to stay quite sanguine about my blogging, despite a kid from his school last year discovering and reading this blog. He’s also a huge social media user, and shares lots of his own photos. I always check images before I post them, but not the copy. Hope you’re having a good weekend. Cheers, Su.
