Kids growing up is scary!

Hopefully you all have been clicking on my adverstising thing that is showing the "hot guys". Damn. Mamma needs to buy her kids some new clothes. Trevor's had to wear some old elastic waist shorts that were in the back of the drawer because I haven't had time to take him shopping.

I'm taking a "personal health day" tomorrow. If I don't have a day off I think I might snap. I've felt so stressed out all week about leaving my kids home while I go to work. Big guilty feelings that I'm being a bad mom. Which I know I'm not because HELLO I'm going to WORK because they can't stop growing for 5 minutes.

Not to mention that I need to take Jessica in to take her test to get her driver's permit. Nothing motivates me more to get her in to do that than having to drive her everywhere under the freaking sun. But to tell you the truth, having her driving scares the crap out of me. I'm so worried that she's going to get in a car accident.  I see a subscription for Xanax in my future.

To freak me out even more Jessica's friend was in a car accident the other day. Her mom was driving her and her sister to the movies. Jessica tried to get a ride with them but for some reason that wasn't working out. Scott took her and a little after they left she sent me a message that they weren't going to the movies now since the friend was in a car accident. This car?

Now looks like this

Thank God no one was seriously hurt. The girl that was sitting in the back where they were hit had a cut up foot. Everyone else just had bruises. Lucky aren't they?

So yeah, I'm not too excited for Jess to drive when I think of things like that happening. BUT I will have so much more time when I'm not waiting around for her and driving her around all over. I'll just wrap her up in some bubble wrap I think.

Have you ever been in a car accident?

I've been in minor fender benders, but one where a guy hit me while we were on ice and I almost killed a lady but barely missed her. It wasn't my fault and it was scary.

My mom was never worried about me driving it was always the other drivers. I mean every day- how many times do you slap on your brakes because people don't know the road laws? But my parents always said- that if I total my car, I'm done. If I get a speeding ticket, I'm done. If I get any kind of moving violation, I'm done. And by being done- it meant that I no longer drove and they didn't drive me. Public bus and/or walking. Shameful. ;)

I've only been in one. Years ago when my kids were small (youngest was only about a month old) I was stopped to make a left turn and a delivery van came flying up behind me and....didn't stop. Both kids were in the backseat. I was thankfully driving a big old oceanliner of a car that I hated, but the husband and talked me into because the van FLATTENED the car right up to the very back of the backseat. Pretty sure I got at least 10 years of my life scared off that day. The other driver? Got fired over it.

Kids and cars are scary!
Having 6 grown kids all driving now .... sends me mental!
Every time the phone rings late at night or early in the morning I freak out thinking one of them has had an accident.
4 of my kids already have had accidents, luckily only one of them was hurt... but not too badly!

Both my brothers died in car accidents too.. so I know it CAN and DOES happen.

How scary! I'm not at all mentally prepared for me son to start driving next year. I fear for everyone else on the road, not him. lol I'm not opposed to postponing his driving age if I don't feel that he's ready. Good luck with your teen driver!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my guest post at Seven Clown Circus last week ( I know this is really late, but I still wanted to stop by and say thank you.
