Drivers license for daughter :)

Ok, well this may be boring to some, but as we all know, this is a huge milestone in ones life. I had no idea that my daughter was taking her drivers exam today. She popped home and announced she got her drivers license! I was so proud of her ( oh and felt a bit old sitting in the passenger seat). She has a lead foot though, kind of scary at times, but I bit my tongue for the most part. Seeing as she will have to pay for her own insurance, I told her she might want to start going the speed limit. She said if she gets a speeding ticket she will lose her license for three months (thats a good thing!)

Anyway, I am a proud parent today! I was the first person she came to see after she got her license, and she said "is there anywhere you want to go mom"? Just so happened that I had to return something at a store, and with those funds I bought her some car supplies (air freshener, upholstery cleaner, cd holder, trash holder). Ok, thanks for letting be boast about my girl

That's a major milestone. You little girl is growing up!

Take advantage of the situation and send her out to run errands for you before the novelty wears off!

Oh Amber...such a great milestone. When my boys initially got their licenses, they'd run any errand and we really enjoyed that. Way too quickly, errands became a pita and we'd have to wheel and deal.

Not much of a problem since if they wanted the car on the weekend, they had to do what mom asked during the week. LOL, going for a loaf of bread would be an hour and a half....geez, the good ol' days. I miss them.

Congratulations to both of you, Your daughter for getting her license and to you for raising such a responsible young lady!

I personally just went through this 2 weeks ago myself with my son and I wasn't nearly as calm as you are!

Congrats. to your daughter - went through this with two boys, it was very scary for me! They do drive too fast at the beginning, but after a ticket or so, they learn fast in the first year !

Amber I am so glad for your daughter. I remember when I took my driver's test I stopped at all the lights and stop signs, but unfortunatly there was a dark green apartment building and I stopped - looked around and then processed back to the the Department of Motor Vehicles.

The gentlemen that give me my test that I scored a 98 percent but he was going to have to fail me because when the green apartment building was there was a red right and I went right through it.
