    My daughter turned 16 in May. It is so scary. As good as she is, I am always worried about what the outside world my have in store for her in the future. She's learning how to drive right now and that frightens me to death. It is not so much her getting into an accident, but that this right of passage is leading her into adulthood. I'm going to have to let go of the control I have over her life soon and let her take the reins. It is so scary. I send best wishes to you and your son. Sometimes I wish my kids could stay little forever.

    Julie, as a mother of 3 grown daughters, I hear ya. You described it so perfectly, never thought of it like that, birthing them into adulthood, so true! I'm a grandma now to a beautiful 18 month old boy, and my daughter is experiencing those firsts you described. I just sit back and enjoy the little guy, knowing she has a lot more harder things to go through when he gets to be a teenager. Oh the joys of being a grandma! So worth all those hard years of raising kids.
