Not yet please.

I saw Ezra playing with G.I. Joes last weekend. I wondered if he was blithely enjoying what I, watching, knew to be a last string of his life as a little boy. Or is he aware how quickly he is growing up, and was consciously holding on to this last piece of his childhood: Action figures. Years ago he called it playing with "guys." I secretly pray he will  become a nerd and never completely grow up.

I wanted the same thing with my son but he looks and sounds like a nearly grown man now. (He still has some lego though and that makes me smile.)
