You Know Your Children Are Grown When . . .

1.  You find a long list of alcoholic beverages in your car in your son’s handwriting, and realize there’s nothing you can (or should) say to him, because he’s thirty years old, and he was on a liquor store run for his grandmother.

2.  Your daughter tells you not to get glasses that make you look like an “old lady,” and when she helps you pick out new glasses to insure that you don’t pick out something awful, even your husband likes them better than the ones you would have picked out for yourself.

3.  Both of your children are making decisions on behalf of their clients and the public that have a bigger impact on the economy than anything you do in your current life.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
