what my parents went through.
I took my son driving today. First time for me with him, about his second or third time driving but it's been a while.
He did fine. We didn't run into anything. He didn't speed - much. We got there in one piece and I didn't even have to raise my voice.
But I was tense all the way and I felt like I was doing what I used to make fun of in my mom. You know, when your right foot is firmly pressed to the floor to help brake...
It was a good experience for both of us. I'm sure he'll learn how to moderate his speed and his braking speed and how to navigate around corners so we only go in one lane. And I'll learn how much to say and not to say.
Since I want him to do some driving on an upcoming road trip, he needs to practice and drive every day. But I think I might let his dad do a few of the driving practices. It's hard to be a mom sometimes.
