J & The Army

J has an interview with the Army recruitment officer next Monday.  Looks like the glitch has been sorted out, and he can take the next step in his life after school.  Scary.

He's not too worried about that - the hair length was the result of a bet with a mate to see who could grow their hair longer (plus a touch of laziness). I like it though, so I'll miss it!
Oh well, in that case he probably won't miss it too much, but poor mum. If seeing him in his first suit was bad seeing him with short hair and a uniform will be even worse (assuming that all goes well in the interview).
I'm not sewing name tags into clothes just yet ;-). See what comes from the interview. From what I gather the prelimiary interview is just the first of a huge selection process.
In that case I'll leave it to you as to whether I'm meant to keep my fingers crossed he gets in or fingers crossed that he doesn't.
It's one of those scenarios that's probably explained in the Parents' Handbook, but I never got my copy. My parenting technique involves a lot of fudging, and doing the best as we go along.
