I am still nervous when EB gets behind the wheel. We recently discovered that he needs glasses. Those might improve the experience!

Oh see those are the things I am absolutely not looking forward to!! I think that driving will be a dad job, 100%!!

Like you I am a control freak so I have no idea how I will cope when the boys start driving - just 4 years to go.

What hit me though was the blueness of the sky. It is so flipping grey here all the time. Given me the impetus to think a little more about moving.


Yayay! I'm so happy for you that you are done with the whole teaching to drive time. I thought I would be really good at teaching my kids to drive, but found out very quickly that when it comes to driving I'm very much a control freak.

Okay, I am SO thankful I don't live by YOU when my kids learn to drive. That's the day I appreciate quiet county highways, thank you.


I am NOT looking forward to that! I find it hilarious that my dad taught me to drive. The man cannot navigate his way out of a parking lot, and he drives UNDER the speed limit.

This should be a piece of cake for you now! Shaun wouldn't have anything to do with the teaching process...talk about control freaks.


I'm sure she's a good, safe driver.

Having said that, I dread the day when my kids start driving!!


Another thing I do not miss about teenagers - driving practice!!!!

The freeway is the scariest for me...luckily, we can avoid it most of the time.
Best of luck to SB and YOU.


I did the giving birth part - my husband does the student driving part.


I did it twice when my husband just couldn't. My youngest will not be driving, so I think I'm done!


I don't even know how you do it. I am DREADING the day my son is old enough. Or maybe by then I won't be dreading it because I will be old and tired and will be happy for him to have some independence. It is 13 years away for now.

I did most of the sitting with (I wouldn't call it teaching) but my husband did the stick shift lessons,


I so know that feeling! Hurrah. My last one got her license a couple of months ago and life is so much simpler now. She is a bit nervous of the freeay so whe doesn't get too adventurous - yet.

unmitigated me (m.a.w.)

I'm not a control freak, I swear, but I am a very good defensive driver. Riding with my husband or kids driving makes me crazy beyond control.
