Permitted to Have a Permit!

Well, I guess I have to face it my "baby", my first born son, the child I cried and prayed for for 7 long years is no longer a little kid. He is growing up! Yesterday I took him in and he got his drivers permit! I can't believe he is old enough to learn how to drive a minivan already!

But he has his permit, signed, sealed by the state of Alaska and delivered into his hip pocket via his wallet! Gone is the ID card from 5 years ago when he looked like such a baby. (I kept that!) Now he is rarin' to go!

He drove me part way home from the DMV yesterday after getting it. And today he drove a friend's truck to the city dump and back! I feel like I need to catch my breath! I want to enjoy every moment of him growing up and yet I want to stop time and never let him get any older. Once in a while I wish I could step back in time and hold my "baby" once again. But all in all I am very happy for and proud of my wonderful son, Mathew!
