Ok, background to the story:
A couple of days ago, a girl from school gave Josh a plastic necklace. He's been wearing it around the house and he has been wanting to wear it to school as a bracelet (double it up of course). We keep saying no, that boys don't wear jewelry, etc. Apparently it's a bigger issue than we realized. heh On the way to school today he said, (with a very downcast face), I just wanna be cool like everyone else.
He waited for Coby who was walking to school with his dad this morning. So he waited outside the car. Pretty soon, after we'd said bye (I was waiting for him to go in), he knocked on the car window. I rolled it down, he & Coby were standing there, and Josh said, "See mom? HE looks cool." *sigh*
I knew we'd get to this point sometime but he's only 7! He's still my baby! Where does time go?
