Our oldest daughter has been a challenge to raise, to say the least, but now that she has a drivers license she has been very helpful to have around and it is nice to know that I’m getting something out of the deal, after all the heartaches of raising and dealing with her and her “issues.”
Being a working mom is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. There just isn’t enough of me to go around and not enough hours in the day to get everything done. My family depends on me way too much, I swear I wonder how they are wiping their own behinds on their own without me there to hold their hand while doing their business. Even trying to write my daily blogs I get interrupted several times per paragraph, I am about full to the brim with it all.
That is where my daughters driving comes into play. It is so nice to be able to send her out to pick up things that I don’t have the time or energy to do, like picking up milk or cigarettes, late at night. I wish she had her own car to drive instead of having to take one of ours, but that will come eventually, I hope. Her little sister needs transporting here and there, like most kids, and it is nice to know that if I am busy or sick that I can depend on the oldest to pitch in and drive her where needed.
