Do you remember that awful set of initials from the 80s? DINKY – yes Dinky – my wife and I were Dinky’s from 1985 to 1990. Double Income No Kids Yet. Then along came Son-of-Furtheron who is a now a 6ft bearded PhD Physics student who’s moved out… well I could still legitimately say “kid(s)” as Daughter-of-Furtheron was still a child. Well no more – tomorrow morning the 22nd Nov she becomes an adult – yes my little (she still is bless her as she is only a shade over 5ft) girl turns 18.
I have no kids left – what do you call them now? My adult offspring?
Son-of-Furtheron will be heading home Friday night and then Saturday is her huge party – about 100 friends and family. She wanted a party so Dad has had to dig into the coffers to pay up.
It’ll be a great time – if a little odd… I have no kids any more … 😦
