He did it so I damn well did it too...

Yep, Dh is with the kids while I'm at work. I have a "flex" schedule since I have to work weekends! Anyways, he packs up my 2(almost 3) year old and my ALMOST 2 month old to go pick up their brother(almost 5) from school. He not only picks him up from school, he takes him there to. He also takes them all to the store.

I have a fear of driving with the kids in the car :(....but today I DID IT. I packed up the kids to go pick up Caleb from school, I brought them into work with me because I HAD to talk to my boss. I DID IT, I DID IT!!! I didn't panic driving, I didn't panic with time scheduling. If he can do it, so can I---that's what I told myself, and I'm proud of my mini achievement.

Most of my family thinks its irrational fear, but DH just goes with it, I've been this way forever he's not going to change it, BUT I did change it and he gave me a high five!--I still had to have my window half down, since I feel claustrophobic when I'm driving.

Opposite, I take my kids everywhere but it is my hubby who is afraid to handle them at stores, etc. by himself.

Is it an actual fear, or choice? I'm honestly curious. Mine was pure fear.
