Today is THE Day –

– according to my teenage daughter. THE day of her life. Today she gets a learner’s permit and can “officially” drive the car. Over my dead body!

ACK! Can I please turn back the clock and make her a precious baby, that adorable sweet smelling bundle that made me a Mom? Can I turn her back to that adorable four year old with a lisp and a precocious vocabulary? Can I make her ten years old again, still taking tap lessons and learning to ride a horse?

I suppose not. She’s a wonderful young woman: smart, generous and kind. She’s totally gorgeous, and completely unaware of her beauty.

It’s time to start letting go. Besides, once she gets that license, she can help drive her younger siblings everywhere!
