The Flying and Crawling Pizza

As I sit here writing this,
I'm thinking, gosh it really doesn't seem like that long ago
that I was a high school freshman myself...
Well ok,
maybe that's a wee bit of a stretch,
but you know what I mean.

Time is a funny commodity.
It has a way of sneaking up on you.
At times it seems to fly.
Yet, others it crawls.

I guess in some ways this post is about both those things;
flying and crawling.

Time in general has flown since I was a freshman in high school,
though there have been stages during that period,
 that have crawled.

Moments it seems like he is still a little boy,
then others almost a man.

In actuality...
he is a teenager.
One who plays guitar,
listens to music,
loves soccer,
 texts at the speed of light....
Oh yeah, and can make a mean pizza!

One who measures carefully...

Stirs with care...

Stretches and presses the elastic dough with nimble fingers...

And bakes with precision...
a very yummy
BBQ chicken pizza,
all by himself!

And the best part...
he even does dishes!

It truly seems like yesterday that he wasn't able to walk or talk,
let alone read a recipe or cook me a meal.
Yet, somehow that day arrived.
The flying, crawling pizza was here,
and now it's flown by...
It was delicious!

Cooks, does the dishes and plays the guitar -- quite the young man you have raised. Although it seems like a long ways away, I know my two little men will be young men before I know it. Hopefully, young men who make pizza for me.:)

I have a feeling that he probably learned all that from the best! A true chef in the making! :)

It is so true that time can pass so slowly at times then fly by at others. Children grow up fast and fly away on their own in the twinkling of an eye. It's a call to remember to cherish each and every moment of every day with your loved ones.
