Driving Lesson

There are many things that strike fear into the hearts of the adult with children, but few are more frightening than the day your child gets a learner's permit. Yesterday my stepdaughter passed the little test that preceeds that fateful moment. Now she wants to drive absolutely everywhere and it falls upon me to sit with her. Today I gave my stepdaughter her first, full-length driving lesson. It was an action-packed affair that featured the ludicrous 4-way stop sign, traffic lights and parked vehicles. But on only three occasions did I find it necessary to grab the steering wheel and I found myself unclenching my buttocks after the just thirty minutes. It is amazing how quickly kids pick things up.
