He took his buddy to youth group last night, he took his girlfriend to Peter's Drive-In tonight. No longer the designated chauffeur, I must seek out new ways to connect with him other than during the quiet 30 minute drives from here to there.
This is possible, but takes more planning on my part - to look casual about it so he doesn't think I'm going to use it as a parenting session.
He's growing up. And so am I.
