REAGAN RATTLES!!!!!

I have some very upsetting news to report.....
It's official, I now am the proud owner of a.....drum roll please.....
HIGH SCHOOL FRESHMAN....
I'm not sure when this happened. I have lost my baby. If anyone finds him please let me know. We will be offering a very large reward...
No, really all joking aside. I knew this day was coming and I have been trying to prepare myself for this next stage in Cody's life. My mom always told me "Don't blink your eyes, because they grow up in a minute." I hate to say this, but she was right. I must have blinked somewhere along the way, because he is 12 days away from starting high school. Oh, goodness I'll be right back...hard to type with tears in your eyes.. Seriously, I really am crying. O.K. enough of that for now. I went to my first official parent meeting last night at Cody's new school. It was a meeting for the football parents. Hip Hubby was out of town on business, so it was up to me to get the football information. (funny, I know) So I happily decide that I will jump right in and volunteer. They needed help selling football gear so Michelle and I  decide that we would help SELL!
RIGHT, I ended up buying 1/2 of the items they had to sell. Of course, I blame hip hubby for this. I mean he did send me there to take care of football business... So when all was said and done I ended up with a cute tote bag, 2 baseball hats, 2 shirts for hip hubby,2 coasters, an umbrella (that was free when you join the diamond backers) and 2 beach towels ( The were on sale 2 towels for $5.00. I thought that was a bargain)
So, I have decided that if I am going to have a high schooler, than I better look cute while I support him......
I'm sure as the weeks go on this is going to be the hot topic in our house.
Just a word of advice: Everyone out there in blogger land with little babies that keep you up late at night, the one that you are trying to potty train and even the little ones that are starting school for the first time this year. PLEASE REMEMBER WHAT MY MOTHER TOLD ME, SHE WAS RIGHT. DON'T BLINK.....oh god, here come the big tears, again....
