Today I feel very old. Ben has his learner's permit. I'm a bit in shock.
You would think with all my expertize at paperwork stuff after navigating through this adoption that I would have quickly and professionally helped my dear son get his learner's permit without incident... Not so! We arrived yesterday at the DMV only to discover that we needed a BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Not an issue if you only live 5 minutes from the DMV but definitely a headache if you live a lot farther than that! So back this morning we went WITH THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE and the first question out of the attendant's mouth was 'May I see your Social Security card....' ????? Double goof. Fortunately they only needed the number so I called my dear, dependable Dad to go run over to our house, dig out the file and read off Ben's number! Honestly, what would I do without Dad next door???
So my happy son has a piece of paper that says he can drive and Rob and I are looking at each other wondering where the time has gone.
