I’m sitting here at the DMV waiting for my son to take his permit test. It’s nerve wracking, first for the actual test and second that he is actually on the “road” so to speak, to becoming an adult. It’s scary how quickly kids grow up. Really, wasn’t it just last week he was having a light saber battle with his brother? Okay, that actually did happened last week. But seriously, it doesn’t seem that long ago I was rocking him to sleep or dancing to The Wiggles with him.
and nothing, at least as of this moment, can compare to the anxiety I feel as my son begins to drive. As I am ending this post, he has just passed his test. The excitement in his eyes is contagious. While I know this is not going to be easy, it is a rite of passage–a step in growing up. As much as it pains me to think about it, that was always the goal of being parent right? For now, I am going to continue to enjoy whatever stage he’s in because I know it won’t be long before this, too, is a distant memory.
