My baby got his Driver's License today... Waaahhhhhh!

Today was one of those days my son will remember for the rest of his life.  The day he got his Driver's License.  I tried to make it a good day...

I smiled alot... although I wanted to bawl my eyes out.

I didn't yell at him as he drove me to school... even though he stops waaaaaay to late...

I made sure and said a prayer with/for him before his test.

Did I mention I tried really hard not to cry?

Yeah, that plan failed.

Right after the DMV lady came to sit in the passenger side of his truck... I excused myself to go to the ladies room, and let the tears fall in private.  He's almost a man now.  What the heck and I gonna do with an almost full grown man as a son?  He won't need me for anything soon... THEN what am I gonna do?

This Motherhood business is so tough.  You pour your entire life, heart and soul into raising these humans... and they go and get all independent on you... WHAT'S UP WITH THAT!

He is soooo very excited.  I drove him home so I could get MY car, and he took HIS truck back to school.
No more "ours".  {{sigh}}

So I told him I loved him, and watched him drive away...
and called the school to make sure he got there okay...
What!!! I'm his Mama!  It's my right!  He might be a man (almost)... but he'll ALWAYS be my little boy...


  1. I think you should write a book: Growing Pains from a Parent's Perspective. Sorry, but this made me laugh. Crying because he got his license? Calling the school to make sure he arrived safely? LOL!

  2. Congrats to your manchild!! and I'm sure he loved that you cared so much he just won't tell you that! :)

    hope you're having a wonderful week so far!


  3. Karen... yep... and I own it!!! LOL... It's just so gut wrenching to see the person you've nurtured and burped, and diaper changed and chauffeured around for years... do it all on his very own...Soon, he'll be on his own... and it's just so much to handle... but I am soooo proud too...

    Amanda... I work at his school... and I was having lunch at home... so I called the front office ladies... and they told me that if I hadn't called... they would have called me to tell me... LOL

  4. When I was a young mom and my kid's were babies I naively thought that when they were grown up I wouldn't have to worry about them anymore like a did. Now I know how silly that thought was. My daughter is 26 and living 400 miles away from me and I still worry about her... ALOT!

    I agree, this Motherhood business is so tough!

  5. I'm not looking forward to that day

  6. Saundra,
    I'm close to this event myself and I have to tell you, I cried when I read about your experience. I understand it's not a SAD thing, it's a great thing. But it's such a bittersweet thing!! Hugs to you, sj
