I got to borrow this cute little Chevy Cruze Hatchback Diesel last week and the kids and I were pretty obsessed with it. We were always thinking of reasons to drive it around town (“Hey, who wants to drive to the end of the street and back?”). Annie begged and begged and begged to sit in the driver’s seat, “just once!” so I finally let her (don’t worry, the keys were in my pocket and she knew not to touch the pedals). It gave me a weird flash-forward to when we start teaching her how to drive. OMG I just realized that she’s closer to being of driving age than she is to the day she was born!

I need to lie down.
