mental health day

one last mental health day for boo as he nears the end of middle school. we spent the morning part of it walking on willard beach with minnow (which we can only do before nine a.m. now that it's may).

i took the above photo to demonstrate something that boo and i realized suddenly the other day while standing side-by-side in front of a mirror: he is taller than i am. yes, that's his shadow on the left and mine on the right.

also, his feet are bigger than mine, although that's not a new thing. and my feet are pretty gigantic. i wonder how tall this boy will be? he has one parent of average height, one of average/shortish height, a couple of tall uncles, and some tiny aunties and great-grandmothers (with teeny tiny feet, i might add). and m's mom, grandma nancy, is a tiny lady too!
