I Wonder...

I wonder what kind of teenager Lucas will be?

Will he be a loner with his head in a book or hold an office on the Student Council?

Will he be the captain of the football team or sit on the sidelines and cheer on his friends?

I wonder if he'll wait until the last minute to complete his home work assignments or turn reports in early?

I wonder if he'll play an instrument in the school band or land the leading role in the annual production of Romeo and Juliet?

What will he major in once he gets to college, if he goes to college?

I wonder if he'll want to join a fraternity or avoid the Greek system all together?

Will he be a nail bitter, volunteer at a homeless shelter, want to get a tattoo?

Will he complete his college education after four years, or decide to go for a PhD.?

As an adult, will he be an early riser or enjoy sleeping in?

Will he bounce from job to job or be loyal to the first company that hires him?

I wonder how many hands he'll hold, doors he'll hold open, chairs he'll pull out and girls he'll kiss?

I wonder if he'll bike, run, or practice yoga?

Will he'll like spending time at the beach, or if the sand will only annoy him?

Will he be a black coffee drinker or enjoy something fancier, like a caramel macchiato?

I wonder if he'll be comfortable traveling and fill his passport before he's 30 or prefer staying close to home?

Will he be a people pleaser or stand his ground and always be ready for a debate?

I wonder if he'll ever know how much he's loved.

I wonder...

Sitting here reading this, brought tears to my eyes.

Even when they're teenagers, you never stop wondering what type of person they will be. I watch my son with his girlfriend and wonder if she's anything like the woman he will one day marry, if he does.
I watch my middle son and wonder when he will believe in his abilities as much as I do.
I look at my daughter and see so many things. I want to know what she will be like as a teenager- will she make me worry and walk the floor. Will she be a cheerleader? Will she be a drama queen?

As parents we never stop looking and wondering.

Such a beautiful post, I'm all choked up now.

Yes, this is something that occupies much of my mind too, wondering what my daughter will become. It's exciting to see them develop into their own little person and sometimes my heart swells with pride when she shares certain traits and favorites with me, but regardless, it is such an honor to watch them grow up isn't it?

No matter what, he'll be your boy and will always know how much he's loved.

OK Tonya, you got me....because there are still some of these things I wonder about MY son, but many that I already know the answers to.

It doesn't always go how you think it will, but to see them follow their dreams and be who THEY think they are? Is a lovely thing.

But I'm teary....and yes, Lucas will know how much you love him. He will.

You will keep wondering, through their entire lives. I have teenagers now and I wonder what they will be like next year or in the years to come. Time goes by so fast and they just keep growing up. It's a bittersweet ride.

That's another one of those awesome benefits of time - getting to know the soul they've been blessed with. Textbook milestones leave and subtle differences take their place. Alleluia!

It's a fun ride though, isn't it? Unless mine turn to tattoos. Not too sure about that.

It's like you went into my head, and put your beautiful writing and words to work :-)

I love this!!! I often sit and wonder the same thing I like to imagine what my child's life will be like. What he enjoy the things I did and find a completely different hobby. I think that will be the best part of parenthood!!

So many things to wonder about our kids and what they will be like when they grow up.

Lucas will know how much you love him.

Craig and I talk a lot about our guesses for each kid. Only time will tell, but it's fun to pick up on their "hints".

I always wonder things like this about my boys. It's fun to do, but also kind of scary that they will grow up someday. I'll miss my babies!

Dang it, Tonya.

My post today is how I don't WANT Eddie to grow up! I want to stay right here...22 months.

But I wonder about these things as I rock him at night. I let my mind wander.

and tears start to fall as I hold his little fingers in mine.

and now I have tears again.

Oh this is beautiful. I wonder these same things about my daughter. And when I had her I realized for the first time that my mother wondered these things about me.
A child will know how much you love them when they hold their own.

that was simply gorgeous, our dreams for our children....I also wonder and hope and dream for them.
Let's hope they all get the rainbows we have in mind for them.
