Write Over the Weekend theme for this week
This time your entry must contain, ‘I caught him/her looking at me.’
The physical changes are distinct and marked by hoarse voice, rapid rise in height and sprouting of a faint hairline curve above the lips and sprouting of fine facial hair giving many a 'hair-raising ' experience. His class-mates being some months older to him have already advanced to full blown facial hair giving an unkempt and shabby façade.
Seeing his class-mates resemble a grizzly bear, he has vowed to go for a clean shaven neat look at an appropriate time. I smile at his wise decision.
Before stepping out of the threshold , he glances at the mirror and asks for my opinion. Off-late he is taken to spraying perfume on his clothes. The fragrance spreading in the house is making me sniff after his generous overdose. I ignored him. From the periphery of the eye , I caught him looking at me for approval. I smiled . He took the hint and started to pack his satchel to attend tuition classes. I know soon I will have to make space for an after-shave lotion and a shaving kit.
My eyes are moist. It was only yesterday that I brought him wrapped in soft , warm, cotton clothes from the hospital . Today he stands tall and proud at 176 cms. And I am a proud mother. How time flies........................
