What I've Been Up To
1. Driving around town in circles letting my teen practice his starting, stopping and speeding.

2. Gripping tightly to any solid surface in the car as I try not to show how utterly terrified I am.

3. Repeating continuously, "You need to slow down" and "Please stop accelerating so quickly".

4. Explaining every five seconds why we cannot go through a drive thru window every time he drives no matter how fun he thinks it is.

5. Thanking God that I survived the day and that the next child won't be driving for at least 18 months.

What have you all been up to?

p.s. Hubby takes over drivers training tomorrow. I am very thankful.

The day my kids are old enough to drive...I think I will need to be admitted. :) Sounds like you are being a good sport about it. Just think how nice it will be when he actually gets his license and you can send HIM on errands!

I am sure this hasn't been fun for you, but it made me smile! Enjoy your husband taking over the driving duties!

LOL at #4!

I think my DH is going to have to be the one to take our kids practice driving when they're old enough.

Oh my GOSH. I remember those days, only it was ONLY my dad who did the drivers' ed with us. He wasn't nearly as compassionate as my mom. Oh, those were some days!

But yes, as crissybug pointed out, you will soon have your own personal assitant who will be thrilled to run errands for you!

My kids do NOT want me teaching them. They hate it. I freak. And they don't like my imaginary break on the passenger side. Or me yelling as they are stopping behind someone "Stop! STop!!!! Your gonna hit them!!!" They never do, though.

We went to a couples retreat a couple weeks ago and watched a comedy video. One guy said his kid wanted drivers ed and he was so mad that they wanted $150 to teach his kid to drive! So he decided to teach his kid. After one "lesson" he came home and wrote out a check for $500 because they don't get paid enough.
I was rolling! That is soooo true! Except they do have the little brake.

I tried to teach my younger sister how to drive... we made it down the street and then I just decided I could not handle it- too nervous!!
