My son has joined the ranks of the mobile.
I will never threaten my children with pulling their license. I don't see why, if they have done something wrong, I should be punished.
It's pretty cool. Instead of being home by 4:30 to take my son to rock climbing, I just met him there. I was worn out after an hour, so I left him there to climb until he had had enough.
I am frankly a little afraid of the additional distance this will put between us, but that is the nature of growing. It is happening fast. One starts college in the fall, and the other in 2007. It wasn't that long ago that 2007 was a lifetime away. Now it feels like weeks. Sometimes like minutes.
More and more, I understand the temptation to consult with fortune tellers.
