Sunday 160 - Cutting Strings

Parenting to the best of our ability,
we felt we had prepared him well.
Nearly 17 and a man-child,
all we saw was our little boy -
ready to take over the world.

______________

I will admit that I am biased, but that aside, 
one of the most outside the box Sunday 160's I have ever seen 
can be found on Pheromone Girls' blog. yes, it's a real link 

If you don't visit her...you are missing out. 
Really!!

Well, of course, the man-child is a grabbing bit of memory for some of us...

But I REALLY appreciated also your link to Pheromone. What a post! Thanks you, MM

Blogger had me saying the same thing twice, so I removed it, OK?

Monkey Man said...

Blogger has been having some odd hick ups these days, Steve. Your first comment doubled up too, so I removed one.

I was 17 when was left all by self to face the world and completely alone- this does not happen in our country. A child is well fed and taken care of till he/she graduates from a degree college and finds a job!

In my case- I was just forced out of my home..

Insightful 160

Nice 160, MM. I played this week, working it into my music challenge, of course. Mine's also sort of about my son growing up. :)

Mine is here.

I still consider my sons man/boys, at the ages of 50,49 and 48!!!

PattiKen said...

You'll never get past that, MM. Nice universal 160.

And thanks for the point over to Pheromone Girl. Outside the box is right.

Oh, My!

My son is 18 this May,
time flies.
Love your 160, it is independence time.

My Sunday 160!

Stranger said...

Mine son is not even 5 and sometimes I think he's a little too eager to take over the world.
Great 160!
(You're right, Pheromone Girl's tops all!)

I played along this week! Mine's here.

Adsila said...

Ha ha, I love the picture. It reminds me of my little boy who is now a married man and just recently, a father.

izzy said...

Lovely 160! so true- you can see the youngster in them no matter what their age!
I had to link on Gman's page, I couldn't paste to yours- sorry.

Kwee Lewis said...

Hi! I found you from Alice Audrey. I like this game, it makes me think. I like your 160. This past week I've come across several parents with children grown :-) Including my own that's soon going to be 20. And yes, Pheromone Girl's 160 is really neat. Oh, and I know, I'm a day late - I'm sorry. I had technical problems last night. Still, I hoped to get to participate for this week. Thank you!

My exact 160 post is here: http://akweelife.blogspot.com/2011/06/sunday-160.html

I loved this, and I agree, Pheremone Girls is totally original!

Unknown Mami said...

I don't want to miss out so I better go visit the link.

When I dream of my brother he is always a little boy even if he is doing grown up things.

The Bipolar Diva said...

that can be a scary feeling!

Sandra said...

Ya, what's up between you and Pheromone Girl...are you two, like an item or something?
I do enjoy her A LOT!
And this poem Mr. Le Monkey was beautiful. And the picture was adorable!
