I had to fill out a survey this week and it asked me if I had any dependent children. For the first time in 21 years, I ticked no. While I'd like to think my children depend on me for all sorts of things - unconditional love, the occasional transfer of funds, maybe dinner now and again, even late-night company for Love Island - I know deep in my bones they are no longer dependent on me.
