How to feel genuinely grown up

I'm still not sure I think of myself as an adult, at age 33, but I have now been married for nearly eight years, and a father for more than five. Today I took another step to growing up, when I registered my oldest daughter for starting kindergarten in the fall.

What's weird is that she will attend the exact same school I did almost thirty years ago. On the wall in its front hall, the building still has a painted design created by David Chang, one of my grade six classmates in 1980. He patterned it after the logo of the Moscow Summer Olympics. Those games were boycotted by the United States and many other western nations because of the U.S.S.R.'s 1979 invasion of Afghanistan, but we still liked the logo.

I wonder if anyone at the school today knows that bit of trivia?
