18 years ago this evening things were moving... fast. I'd been having contractions for 24 hours and had already been down to the hospital only to be sent home because I wasn't ready. Then at 10pm my waters broke and it was back to the hospital for a LONG and PAINFUL labour until Ben decided to appear at lunchtime the next day - cooincidentally his Dad's birthday, too.
So tomorrow my 'little boy' is 18. I can't believe it! He will be an adult in law. He will be able to vote, drink in a pub and get married without our consent.
I guess that, if he wanted, he could also refuse to continue his ED treatment - and / or involve me in the process.
Thankfully I know he won't do that.
