OK~ Independent children is what all Moms strive for, but it seems so strange that both of my boys are driving! I know I've anxiously awaited this day, but geeshe.....what a way to grow a few more gray hairs! For the past twenty one years, I have been responsible for transporting one, or two of them around.
Now, that Garrett has his driver's license, he can hop in the car and be Mr. Independent! And I look out the window as car #2 leaves for the day and have to seriously think to myself, "How did we get here so soon?" Now I know when he was younger, I was complaining about the toilet paper roll road. This "white" road went from the Northwest corner of the main floor of the house to the Southeast corner of the basement of the house. For some reason I'm thinking I should not have been so worried about that "white" road! Although I am regretting not purchasing stock in that "white" road company.
Now I have to worry about real cars, icy Iowa roadways, and all of the other things that go with driving! I'm thinking I'd like to go back to the days of the toilet paper roads, can I? Life seemed so difficult at the time, but in reality, it was so much simpler! So.....I sit, I pray, embrace the word independence, and have faith that both of my boys will arrive safely from Point A to Point B. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
