The He-Child Grows Up

I'm sad today.
My little boy turned five not long ago.
The joys of raising boys....
"MOM!! I stepped on the lizard's tail and LOOK!! It's still MOVING!!"
"SWEET MAMA!! Look at that lizard!"
"Mom, I'm hot and sweaty and hungry and I'm NOT having a good day!"
It seems like just yesterday I held him for the first time after he was born.
And now he's answering the phone.
*ring, ring*
-picks up phone-
"Who is it?"
"I can't hear you."
"I SAID I can't HEAR YOU."
"My Papa? Or my Nana?"
"Caleb, who was on the phone?"
"I think it was a robot."
