Baby, You Can Drive My Car!!



What??? Um, sorry sweetie, but no, I changed my mind, you can't drive my car -- not until you're about 20 years old! Doesn't she look like she's ready to take off!! If only those little legs were longer and could reach the gas and brakes! Man, I sweated it when the boys were learning to drive. That is one scary time in a parent's life!! And having to allow them in the driver's seat so they can get some practice . . . let me tell you, that takes a lot of guts! Do you know that boys inherently have a lead foot and how close they get to parked cars??? Just remembering that "special" time about makes me break out in a sweat.

Of course, I never caused my parents any worries when I learned to drive. For one thing, my twin wanted to drive all the time and hogged the one and only car my parents owned. I didn't even get my driver's license until I was 17, even though I could have gotten it a year earlier! Driving is still not one of my fav things to do -- but car-dancing -- man, I can really car-dance!! Hmmm, I think I have a few more years of Maddy thinking that it's fun to car dance. I'm so lucky -- she hasn't figured out yet just how dorky her Mom can be sometimes.

Cute. I know exactly what you mean...I have taught three teenagers how to drive... and I have two more to go. It is not fun.
