So, I just had a pretty serious conversation with my almost 10 year old about buying his first car and getting his learners permit. Yes, I realize we are 5 years away from that scene…but seriously he is growing up way to fast for me. The pressure of this culture is causing my son to think he NEEDS and IPhone. There is no stinking way. Thankfully turning ten means we have 3 more years until the teenager times. While I am happy to have a son who is the BEST oldest brother/first born who is both helpful and responsible…my hearts desire is to keep life simply, pure and innocent for him as long as possible. He will grow up but I pray not according to the cultures standards or time lines! For now, lollipops sounds like a better option :).
