An Ode To Boys

Tomorrow is the first day of Middle school for you.

I wish for you short classes with long walks in between; top lockers; teachers who inspire; fun PE classes with an opportunity to slam the eighth grade jerk in dodge ball; Twinkies your mothers can’t see you eat; the cool lunch bench; girls that are nicer to you than they are to each other;  pants no one tells you to belt; many new friends; a bully who never sees you; cool gym shoes; lunch times that last for hours; one loyal best friend who stands with you through everything; corny jokes; many funny gross sounds only you can make; a science teacher who will enjoy this sick humor; minimal awkward moments; and an easy time adjusting to becoming young men.

You are my future, my brightest hope.

(sigh)

even though you smell.

Love,

Brian’s mom

    My oldest son started Middle School last year. I remembered how scary it was for me, and I was a year older. I was worried, but he did just fine. And he really enjoyed the freedom that they give the older kids. Good luck to your boys. I hope they have a wonderful year.

    Beautifully written. I cannot imagine sending my kids off to school at all, seeing as we homeschool, but I remember all too well what those first days were like as a student, and the excitement they brought :)
