One of my daughters goes to college in San Francisco and the other lives about an hour away.
My mom also isn't too far away either and likes to visit with my daughters occasionally. My mom and I have a very turbulent relationship and my girls don't really enjoy spending a lot of time with her but do so because they know she does really does love them even though she's a very difficult person.
My mom is also the world's worst driver. I have told my daughters to avoid at all costs, whenever possible having my mom drive and either meet her at the destination or if my oldest is there, she can drive her car.
Today I receive a text from my youngest that she is going to lunch with Grandma and there was no way out of Grandma driving and she didn't think offering to drive would go over well.
I asked her to text me when she got to the Cliff House and when she got back to the dorm apt. I really feel for my baby right now.
She just got back to her dorm. She said lunch was nice but Grandma always appears confused when she's talking to her. She just doesn't get my younger daughter...sigh...oh and they were only honked at two times while driving. For my mom that is not bad!
