Oh the rituals of youth, prom tonight, graduation next week and soon my days of having a "child" at home to care for, worry over, get exasperated with, will be over.
Has it really been 18 years? Did I survive all the bad stuff, did I take enough pictures to help me remember all the good stuff? Did I teach him everything he needs to know to survive and thrive?
Only time will tell. Take a deep breath and plunge into the next stage of life.
