sometimes I even scare myself

I am not the world's best driver. I drive too fast and tend to multi-task when I drive. I've also had several speeding tickets, but none recently. . .Don't blame me--it's that whole ADHD thing. Anyway, I drive a lot, but I'm not a great driver.

We were on the way to school this morning. Suddenly, Kady screams, "Drive, Mama, drive! Mama, drive!" I look down and realize my hand is at the bottom left side of the steering wheel, and from Kady's vantage point, it looks like I'm not steering the car.

How bad is my driving when I'm scaring a two-and-a-half year old?!

Ha ha ha!

We have a little back seat driver. We also have a manual transmission. Occasionally I have stalled out. And then I have to explain to the 2 yr old that we didn't hit anything, etc etc. Oh dear.

LOL - if it makes you feel any better, my 2 1/2 year old tells me, "Be CAREFUL, Mommy", every time I take a turn too sharply or run over a curb (those darn curbs! Jump out in front of me all the time!!).

Hello! Just stopping by after getting your adorable card via the cardswap. Thank you! This post makes me glad my dog can't talk, but I do feel bad when she flies across seats or almost out the window with a sharp turn or punch of the breaks, oops!

ok ya'll all have it good...my kids have seen me twice go from being towed around the yard to sailing down the ravine due to faulty towing practices and both believe that I broke the tow thingy and crashed both the mower and the race truck...now their daddy was the one who created the tow thingy and who coerced me into being the TOWEE, but i am the one blamed and so they see my grandma this week and T tells everyone who will listen to him that MAMA CRASHEDED MY TRUCK down the hill.
GAHHHHHH
