Remember the film “Big” with Tom Hanks, when he goes to the carnival as a 12 year old boy and comes home a man?

On Sunday mornings I feel like the mom in that movie as my own boy stumbles out of his bedroom…

with the same face he wore as a toddler,

only now it’s towering over me…

and he’s wearing boxer shorts that have grown too sizes too small, overnight…

and out of his mouth comes a deep grumbling…

of a man,

with hairy legs,

calling me,

Mom.
