My eldest dd is driving. O-M-G.

She got her learner's permit last week, and so now I am sitting in the passenger seat while she navigates these busy streets.

"Mom, the light is green. Can I go?"

"Only if there isn't oncoming traffic can you make a left turn, Dolly. There are 2 cars coming...hold on...okay, now GO!"

"Mom, I'm doing GREAT at driving, aren't I?"

[My knuckles are white as I grip the dash board and my stomach feels like it's going to launch all of its contents.> "Yep, you're doing swell."

"Mom, I'll babysit for you and dad tonight IF you take me driiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiving!!!!"


Seriously, my dd is in conrol of a deadly weapon...because any wrong move on these streets and we're toast.


You just wait until your sweet, darling toddler becomes a pimple-faced and hormonal teenager and has control of the family vehicle. It's pretty darned scary...
