I tend to worry sometimes that as he gets older, he will leave and won't come back. I realize that leaving is part of life. I also realize that the more bonding time I have with him now, the more things we can do to form a common bond, the more likely our relationship will continue into adulthood. I don't take for granted that since he is my blood, he will always want to spend time with me.
He is my shadow and wants to be like me. I have to remember to treat him like I want to be treated, every second of every day. And not just treat him right, but everyone around me, be the person who I want him to be.
I hope I get it right.
