My son gets his license Wednesday (accccck!!)

My son is getting his license this week. He is the baby of my oldest 3. I cant believe he is already going to be road bound lol. Anyway he is an "ok" driver. He isnt horrible or great but I guess who was when they got their license right? He gets a little distracted some times and I have to remind him of small things (check your blind side, dont hug the side of the road etc). Honestly because I am "mom" I feel like I am going to have a heart attack every time I get in the car lol.
He wants to drive my car to church by himself Wednesday night. He has driven the road there and back atleast 100 times. Should I let him?

  • If he passes, let him drive. You have to let go and trust at some time.
    My daughter will have had her permit for a full year next Sunday so she is now able to get her driver's license per NC state law. But she's my 3rd child to go through this process.

  • Let him. He has to do it on his own sometime Mama. He will be fine! :)
