Coolest Mom Evah!

I’m gonna go ahead and say it . . . because Dude is “thinking” it, but won’t say it.

One of his buddies got his permit the week before Dude did.

Dude was telling his buddy how he gets to drive everywhere and has been on the busy streets during lunch hour and on the interstate and has driven at night a few times and has driven to school in the morning.

Buddy was all like “My mom won’t even let me drive hardly at all. Barely down the driveway. And totally not on the interstate. She’s making me wait until I get my hours in with the instructor at Master Drive.”

Yesterday when I picked Dude up from baseball, I let him drive to the Sky Sox game (cars, traffic, event parking lot – OMG!). Buddy looked at me sitting in the passenger seat and mouthed “Good luck with that.”

I know what he really wanted to say was “You’re the coolest mom evah!”

At least that’s what I’ll tell myself 😉

Dude is driving very well. Getting better. Still has issues with speed control (eh hem) in busy traffic and judging when to pull out in front of people. But overall, totally trust him to drive pretty much anywhere. Woot!

    So glad that you are letting him drive a lot because I think that is so important in terms of their experience and learning. I feel bad for his buddy because he isn’t getting the high level of training and experience that Dude is. Good job Mom!! P.S. – has he gotten to drive dad’s new truck yet?
