AAAAAAAAAAAGHHH!

It came so suddenly! Without warning... out of nowhere!

He ironed his own shirt!!

It all began with the sounds of the ironing board being set up ~ I just don't undersand it ~ I mean, sure, he's done that before, but then he comes to get me or his dad to iron something for him, you know? But this time... this time ... it was different! He actually came and asked me if it was okay to iron on top of the design that was on the shirt!!

WHAT??? WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT?!?

WHY would a baby even CARE about something like that!!??!! I jumped up and desperately inquired, "Do you want me to do that for you?" (please? PLEASE! PLEEEZE!?!)

"No, I will do it."

My son's reply shot terrifying darts of realization into my heart...

It has begun.

(dum...dumdumdum...DUM!!)

Oh nooooooo - he's growing up. Too late.

(although what great joy not to have to iron!)

Iron??? What IS that?
That is why God made permanent press fabrics, Barb.
And don't worry, empty nest is fantastic!!!!
