A Thousand Words Thursday

Cheaper Than Therapy

November 2003 On the backroads in our area, the driving age is..um..5. Hubby has loved to take the kids on a country cruise and then sit them in his lap to help him steer. Incidentally, I've never been in the car when this is happening. AND, my son was all of 2 years old here...who took the picture?

    What does is cost to ensure those drivers?????

  3. Sarah said...

    That is so cute...and exacly something my husband would do - minus the picture. She looks very focused on the road so you should have no worries - at least she's not on her cell :)

  4. ♥ spoiled mommy ♥ said...

    Oh I remember those days, I thought I was so cool when my mother would let me even hold the wheel and steer!
    So adorable!

  5. Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

    I think my favorite part of the story/photo is that the 2 year old is the photographer!! Thanks for the lol at 6:30 am, Jen. :D

    We did this as kids too! Your daughter looks like she's deep in concentration .. wish the drivers on the road were that focused too, lol.

  7. kel said...

    I used to do that with my dad!

  8. Andrea Frederick said...

    That's our driving age too! Aren't they so proud....and even prouder when they can reach the pedals!

  9. Lindsay said...

    awww love it :-) I am with you.. I so would not be in the car either!

  10. Kristen Andrews said...

    oh that is too funny and scary at the same time!

  11. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

    Awwwww, so cute! Who IS taking the picture? ;)

  12. Dee said...

    TOO CUTE! That's how it goes down around here too! I've known how to drive almost forever..but on my 12th or 13th bday my grandad brought a car(he worked on cars) and I drove that thing up and down our driveway(LONG DRIVEWAY) and taught all my friends how to drive! LOL..good times!

  13. Becca said...

    well, whoever took the pic chose a great angle! too cute.

  14. Brittany said...

    My dad used to do this with me and my borther in the fields behind our home, and it's some of the best memories I have! Incidently, I am now the worlds WORST driver...so....it in no way helped with THAT, but it was fun none the less.

  15. Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

    It's totally obvious there wasn't any law breaking going on there, I'm totally.

  16. Bree Shaw said...

  17. Halftime Lessons said...

    Wow...remind me to stay off the sidewalks today.

    Ha, ha - that pic is cute!

  19. Lolli said...

    Good question--who took that picture! Pretty cute, though!

    Thanks for inspiring me this morning to find a certain picture (by accident). It totally made my day!

  20. Abby said...

    Uh-oh! Stay off the roads!

  21. Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

    What a cute picture!

  22. Ann said...

    I remember my dad letting me drive while I sat in his lap.
    One of the BEST memories I have.
    What a sweet smile she has. Makes me happy :->

  23. Former Fat Chick said...

    How very Brittnay of you!

  24. Jen @ Mommay's Mayhem said...

    My first ever! =)

    and yea...who did take that pic??? lol

  25. Mrs4444 said...

    That is awesome! I have the exact same shot (of Kyle). Good times. :)

  26. Audrey said...

    She looks like she is doing a great job!

  27. Just Jenn said...

    My dad lets my boys drive his dune buggy or the golf cart when we are camping. Gotta teach them the law of the road sometime. Plus kids LOVE sterring wheels for some reason

  28. Sarah said...

    Good question! At first I thought maybe the car was parked, but that's not what the gauges say. I always begged my dad to let me drive when I was a kid and he never obliged. I don't think I'd let my kids do it, but I'm positive my husband would, just like yours.

  29. Tara R. said...

    Yeehaw! Who is taking the photo? *snort*

  30. Mel Fraase said...

    And I thought 14 was young!!

  31. 4 Lettre Words said...

    Too cute!

    I'm running behind this week and (darn it) I missed out on ATWT!!! :o(

  32. Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

    That's awesome! :)

  33. wife.mom.nurse said...

    I have been away the past few days... they make me work!!!

    (they=the bills)

    I have missed reading your latest ")

    Okay, even a 2 year old is a better photographer than me!!!!

    No fair ")

  34. Beth said...

    Hilarious! We live in the suburbs so that's not an option for us. My son would have a blast for sure!

  35. Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

    On the road again....I can't wait to get on the road again...

    that popped into my head

    She looks like a expert! Too funny!

  36. Semi-Slacker Mom said...

    Looks like she's doing better than some of the "legal" drivers I've seen!

  37. Tony@ That One Paticular Harbor said...

    That has trouble written all over it. You will be laying bed one night and all the sudden you hear the car drive away. Hmmm where might she have learned that skill? LOL

  38. Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

    I remember doing that with my Grandpa...Did he tell you how he got that picture?

  39. Ali said...

    Cute picture! My boys have been "driving" since they were 2!

  40. Jenni Jiggety said...

    My husband is guilty of this as well! Gives me a little heart failure!

  41. NateAndJakesMom said...

    She looks all grown up! Scary huh?

  42. Patois said...

    I'll fess up to the fact that it isn't just my husband that has done this in our household.

  43. Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

    Did I leave a message already? I thought I did but dont see it...ugh...one of those days.

    Great pic! My hubby always lets the boys drive the tractors and lawnmower and it drives me nuts! Hope she is a safe driver!

  44. zandor said...

    That is great. I used to do this with my aunt.

  45. Clare said...

    scary, but so cute and fun! i know that chris will be doing this with bradley some day!

  46. Linda S said...

    whoops, I was afraid it was going to say "child steals car, news at 11"

  47. Midwest Mommy said...

    OMG! That is great.
