Funny thing though, as soon as I saw you give me the thumbs up from across the parking lot at the DMV, I felt a big tug on my heart and I just let go. I have to trust that all will be okay and let you fly on you're own because you can't have me driving you around forever!! :) Yes, I will worry for a bit and yes you will need to let me know when you get to your destination for the next few weeks or months but I promise it will help me to accept letting go. Give me time just like you gave yourself time to get your license. I'll always be your worrywart mom but I promise I'll chill out....soon.
So go forward my son. Grab hold of that excitement that comes with the words, "congratulations, you passed your driving test!" and enjoy the ride. Life is about to take on a new hue for you yet again, but this time it's at a whole new level. The time that you took to get your license, you've matured enough to understand the reality of it and that will make this a great adventure and that will be such an amazing thing to watch unfold! That maturity obviously showed when the DMV employee told you that you were an excellent driver and you only missed one thing...too wide of a turn. You've got this! I'm so happy for you.
Now go forth, be smart and don't be reckless!!!! Congratulations my driver!!!
I love you more than all the wide left turns in the world!
