Just popped in from the infertility board (DE)
I have a 13 yr old very smart and adorable and moody 13 yr old son Caine.
Mary Ann you are right about mother and son bond. He is my baby and protect him like a lioness and cant stand to think of him dating in the future.
He looks like my husband who I love so much so it makes you even more protective. I love having life prospective through my son.
I have been down on being a women lately too with all the IF problems I have been having.
My son wants to get his eyebrow pirced and my husband said for him to wait because he plays football. My son does know some kids his age with piercings and I know it is normal to want and have them at middle school age. My husbands friend is a piercer and could do it. We are going to hold off for now because the damage it could do if it were to be torn out.
