Milestones: Can The Stress Lead to Kidney Stones in Parents? Discuss

The Teenager got her first car on her fifth birthday. At the time it was both fashionable and affordable. It topped out of a speed of 5 MPH, cornered like it was on rails, and; the child was in heaven when she drove it. Unfortunately, she had a bit of a lead-foot back then but, lucky for her, she had an "in" with the local police department.

I'm going to issue you a warning, today, miss. Please sign, here. Press hard; five copies.

With any luck, she has outgrown the need for speed and the remainder of her driving career will be without incident, because, today; she got her driver's license.

Her newest car goes a bit faster than 5 MPH.

Hold me.

It's all good, Mom.

No, really, someone hold me. Please.


  1. It's all good. :)
    Of course, I say that now, while my own kid is still 5 years from his license and will get one on his 16th birthday over my dead body, but it's all good FOR YOU. ;)

  2. Wow. Seems like just yesterday she was referred to as "the girl" and now we've got the driving teenager. I am feeling a little bit emotional about all of this, so I can't even begin to imagine what you are experiencing!!!
