One afternoon a few months ago my ( 17 year old ) daughter and I were at Walmart. She runs over to the t-shirt section and starts looking around and picks up a green shirt and says " Look Mom, I need this shirt it says 'Genius'. " I started laughing so hard I almost cried and said " Yes, you really do need that shirt but it says 'Guinness'. " So now when she has one of her 'moments' we call her genius. :)
Well, my genius got her drivers license last year 2 days before Christmas. My husband has been working with her driving for the last couple of years but we didn't feel comfortable just turning her loose on the road until recently. NOTE: I have only ridden with her one time about 6 months ago....just once and I have allowed her to drive my car only once and she was with my husband. :) Two weeks ago she got her Daddy's old car and officially starting driving. She is on the dance team for school so she's been driving to and from practice. Let's just say that her Mommy has had a real hard time with this. I even asked her if I could just drive her on the first day of school~ I got the look for that one. :) Well, last night we needed trash bags so she offered to go to the store. Well, the way we were parked in the driveway I had her blocked in. So I relented and told her she could drive my car. She walked out the door and I was busy in the kitchen. Then a minute later here she comes barreling in the front door saying "Mom, Mom, somethings wrong with your car." Her Daddy came running and we both ran out the front door and what do I find? My car in the middle of the street! My genius said ' Mom! The steering wheel wouldn't turn and the gas peddle wouldn't work." Daddy runs out to the car and guess what....the car wasn't even started!!! This means when she "started" the car she basically just let my car roll out into the street. My husband just hung his head in shame and said where did I go wrong. That time I laughed so hard I really did cry. She said " but the radio was on, I thought the car was started." So, be careful there is a GENIUS on the road, but she won't be driving my car. :)
Here she is....
Hope you smile,
