Have I mentioned I hate 10?

Not just any Ten.
The AGE ten.
I have decided that Ten is not a very good age in boy years. What happened to my sweet little Cody? Remember him? He was so sweet and cute and funny, he liked to play with his brother.
That Cody is looooong gone and I miss him.
In his place is the this new Cody, he is moody and sassy and will NOT be nice to his brother at all. And he eats ALL THE TIME!!! This morning for breakfast he had a glass of chocolate milk, 2 scrambled eggs, 3 pieces of bacon, 6 large strawberries, a piece of toast and 3 chocolate chip cookies!!!!!!
Yesterday he got all grumpy because Kip and I decided to go to Costco. Cody grumped all the way there (he never wants to leave the house anymore) and when Kip said he was starting to be a pain Cody said "yeah so are YOU".
At conferences the other day his teacher told me (like they always do) what a sweet, quiet, sensitive boy he is. I wish he was still like that at home. I suppose I should be happy that he is at least still acting human while with other people.

The other day we set up a new email address for him. I signed into it and added all the family email addresses to his contact list. While I was there I sent an email to myself so we could test it out. It said
"Hi mom.
I love you.
While he was at school the next day I replied to the email. I wrote
"Even though I know I wrote this email it still made me feel good to think it came from you.

How sad that the only way my son tells me he loves me know is if I email it to myself. LOL.

Ok, I guess that isn't completely true. The other night when I was leaving for work I told them I loved them (like I always do before I leave) and I heard him say "love you too".
Maybe I should've taped that huh?

I heard a rumor that it's only going to get worse as they get older.

Maybe it is time to get that puppy....

That's gotta be tough! ((HUGS)) I know it's coming with mine, too, and I'm not looking forward to it at all. I hope through it all he'll always at least be willing to say he loves you...because you are his mom, and he always will! :) It seems like such a little while ago that he was a newborn and I was meeting you at your house in Crystal with your huge rottweiler that wanted to eat me. Lots of prayers for the next few years coming your way!
