Buying Time

On Friday May 25, 2012 Zach brought up the fact that it was the day he could actually get his driver’s license.  He had held his permit for nine months, making him eligible age and time wise but there was one small requirement he hadn’t fulfilled yet…he hadn’t finished driver’s ed.  He still has his behind the wheel instruction to finish and he won’t be done with that for another week.

The timing of his driver’s ed course bought me a few more days of not having to watch him drive away from the house without me in the car.  I got to buy a few more days of knowing he is still 100% not allowed to drive without a responsible adult in the passenger seat next to him.  This small amount of time he has left without the freedom of a driver’s license has bought me a few days more with peace of mind.  I know the time is coming for him to drive away unsupervised but I have to say I love that I got to buy a few more days of having Zach a little dependent on me.
Oh, for the love of my children…
