This is a big milestone age in Ontario, as you're legally allowed to drink and smoke. We were talking about the transition in difficult child's psychiatrist appointment today. When the doctor and I were talking about the things that you're allowed to do when you turn 19, husband looked horrified. He seemed to be shouting at me with his eyes, "Are you NUTS woman??!! Don't give the boy ideas!" But...difficult child said that he was scared to turn 19, that he'd never smoke and he'd never drink. He'd just...be 19. I can't believe it. difficult child is turning 19. What happened to my tiny little cherub, and who replaced him with this great lumbering man with the size 12 feet?
