The Handshake

I have the awesome opportunity to be my son's science teacher. Everyday before or after class he makes sure that he receives his daily firm handshake. I first thought nothing of it, until I finally realized, my son was validating another shift in our relationship. He's a teenager! He's moving away from the hugs to handshakes. He's moving away from saying Daddy to Dad. Wow! I almost missed it, he's growing up fast before me.

Now I can't wait until the time at school, when my son extends his hand for his daily handshake with Dad.
