Lord have mercy ... my daughter is driving....

Honestly we have been letting her drive some (illegally... ssshhh) for a while now on the country roads where we live.

But now its legal:



Here's the thing.. Honestly I trust her.. she's a little bit scared to death right now to be driving around other cars and that's good.I don't think anyone should be driving on their own while "scared to death" ... but at (just turned) 14 ... she should be petrified and work towards being a little bit more comfortable.

But I trust her as much as it makes sense to...I have faith that she will take it seriously and it's time.

Kinda makes me feel old tho... seems like just yesterday I was the one scared to death of it.

  1. When my son started driving it was the single most terrifying thing I ever had to get over. It didn't help that dad was deployed (when isn't he)..and I totally trusted him, he is a great kid, with great judgement. It was all the other drivers with not so great judgement that caused my panic. Now my son is finishing up his freshmen year of college and I wonder how I lived through any of it..lol.

  2. USMCWIFE,

    I agree, the other drivers are what scare me the most...

    The last several days have made me very proud of my little girl, she takes it very seriously without being too wrapped around the axle about things.

    She's a good kid, I like when my undertakings come out good... :)

  5. I think it was a dumptruck. I was too busy bleeding from the head and running down the street to remember exactly.
