I DO remember you saying that, and that's a big-time accomplishment and huge step. Good for him and you as parents.

Yeah [sigh] you know in your heart this day will come, but you really try not to think about it until it actually happens. What it says to all you young parents or parents-to-be, enjoy the childhood years. They'll be bailing on you before you know it. Maudlin, huh?
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
