When does one's status change?

As mentioned on Wednesday, Sonshine is home for a visit. It'll be his last for quite some time as he'll finally be out in the fleet doing the things he's trained to do.

But even though he's a legal adult and has been gone and in the Navy, a rite of passage, as it were, to full "adult-hood" if ever there was one, our relationship still feels mostly the same.

He's home and I'm admonishing him to pick up the bathroom, to clean up the mess he made in the living room, and to behave when he goes out.

Will that be different in nine months or year? When does he stop being the teenager he was/is and become the man whom I no longer feel the need to mother?
