Independence

Well Dylan is over at the neighbor's house for the first time alone today. I mean he is playing with the little neighbor boy but I'm not over there... It is a weird feeling. First he was playing in the backyard with me while I was picking some tomatoes and green beans then the little boy, Ricky, came out to play in his backyard. Within a minute Dylan was asking to go over there to play "guns and cops" with him. I could hear them playing and secretly watch them which was pretty amusing but as it starts to get colder out they asked to go inside. I know he is growing up and making friends is really important I just feel like I don't know how to let him do it alone. Everything will work out fine I know, he will be home at 6 I told him which is in 25 minutes. It makes blanching and freezing tomatoes and green beans a whole lot easier without him around but boy it gives me heartburn.

~As a side note, he made it home safe and healthy and said that "I can come back any day I want to as long as they are home, they said that." I'm so proud.
