New steps

Things can change so fast sometimes. My daughter is in taking her test for a permit. She’s going to learn to drive! That means she’s a step closer to moving out.

I how she passes. I hope she moves out. And I wish she was still my little girl sitting beside me on the sofa while we watch Digimon together.

They grow so fast, and it’s amazing to watch. They take the life you helped them start and make it their own. Sometimes I don’t agree with her choices, sometimes I want to chain her down and make her quit growing up so fast. Other days I can’t wait for her to move out and be her own person.

Teenagers are nature’s way of encouraging parents to let go of their children, or so they say, and I can totally see that now.

BTW, she just passed her test. I’m afraid Dave, and totally excited at the same time.
