And I was you

When Jack turned eighteen Saturday, I’d have liked to think that marked the last day of childhood, and a new beginning .
Nope, legally we  might not have any dependents, but that would be the only exclusion at this point. We don’t get to claim him for any tax relief either, so all in all it’s not so much of a win.
It may be a construct of sorts,  the age thing, the demarcation, based on this number. And I’m sure many parents reflect on where they were and what they were like at certain reference points related to age, but I think, that a decision has to be made, for all parties. To make a shift, and transition towards that distinction,  rather then expect it to occur suddenly and completely.
