Son is emotionally less mature (by a long shot) from other boys his age. He's still very whiny and cries easily. I have been noticing now that two of his friends, that come over on a regular basis, their voices are changing and getting deeper. Son still sounds like a little kid. Physically, he is still very much a little boy. He's always been skinny as a rail and clothing to fit him has been a challenge to find. Especially, pants. I was so grateful when they started making pants with adjustable elastic in the waist band. So far, no other signs of maturing. I know that kids hit puberty as different times and rates. I know that Son is going to behind his peers. I just want something to happen before he hits high school. Then this morning he comes into my bedroom and announces: "Mom, I've got a PIMPLE on my face."
