In his shoes

I wore my son's gym shoes today.
I don't even know when this happened but now we share a shoe size.

As I ran around in his shoes all day, I realized that soon he'll be in my shoes.

Adult, spouse, parent,
Keeper of money, mortgage, and vehicles
Faced with decisions with long reaching consequences...

Before he gets into my shoes what do I need to make sure he knows? What things does he need to understand as important before suddenly the door closes and he is gone?

Before I knew it his feet were the same size as mine.
Just as suddenly I suspect, he'll be all grown up.

It was a good reminder.
