I am busy filling an application form.
For high school.
The one who went to grade R last year. Remember when I couldn’t decide if he was ready for Grade R?
Well, he was.
He is also ready for high school. Totally looking forward to it.
Anyway, two things hit me while completing the form.
1. They ask for his cellphone number even before mine.
2. They ask (more than once) which parent he lives with.
Times have changed.
Weren’t parents the only ones with phones and weren’t most parents supposed to be married forever?
Times have changed. A lot.
Just like my son, who is looking forward to leaving behind his primary school and moving on.
