Oh gosh...I'm so nervous!
My dd turned 15 in January, but I didn't let her get her permit because she was terribly snotty to me. I know it sounds like a harsh thing to have done, but it's one of those things that if you had been there to experience it, you would understand. I had explained to her that getting your permit is a privilege, not a right.
Anyhow, she had knee surgery in February, and because we only have stick-shift cars, I didn't want her learning to drive them yet in fear that her bad knee (the left one) would get re-injured if she popped the clutch hard.
My plan had been to let her get it next month, but I decided to use it as a bribe to get her to go to swim practice with the high school team as therapy for her knee. She went to one practice last week and HATED it. I mean she cried and told me she wasn't going back. I told her if she wanted to play soccer next month (when she gets released by the therapist to do so), then she'll swim.
The next day I had the idea that maybe I could soften her dislike for swimming by giving her something she wanted...
Hence the permission to FINALLY get her permit. So, she's got the appointment to take the test Monday afternoon.
Can I just say that I'm TERRIFIED!!!!! The thought of having to ride with her down a street with other cars...
I don't think I'll take my knitting in the car while she's driving. Not yet anyway.
