    Feeling old today

    My oldest daughter, 15, started drivers ed today. Never really gave it a thought until now. She is telling me by Friday she can get her learners permit. There goes my insurance rates and more gray hair.

    Steve.....wait she brings the guy of her life home to meet you.......Then there is the wedding........then she calls to tell you they are expecting......then you hold your first grandchild...........then that grandchild graduates from HS......then you attend her wedding.........Then you get called at midnight...she's been admitted and is delivering.....and then you find yourself playing with the prettiest girl in the world and she's you 3 year old great-granddaughter.

    No...It's all smooth sailing from here. Just keeps getting better every day.

    Don't worry, the grey hair just makes you look distinguished Steve.

    Steve I am sure that you have raised her right and you will not have a thing to worry about. This is a positive thing as you don't have to drive her here and there anymore. Just toss her the keys and relax. It will be tough at first but it will get better. Heck my youngest (17 ) has a car that he wants to sell to buy a motor bike. I am concerned but I trust him to make the right choices.

    She is 15 and you think you are old?
    When my daughter was 15 I was 63 and still going strong.
    Gray hair? Why? Relax and enjoy. Stand back and observe how her life is progressing. Keep in mind, you will have her only a few more years. Then she will belong to another man or be off on her own.
    My advice to parents is to observe your children as they grow and don't blink. Because life can change, or end, in a blink. I know.

    Yep it does change fast. Guess I was/ am having one of those moments. Just yesterday I was changing the diaper, soon she will be wanting the car keys.

    Oh and the keys she wants, are for a 2010 Camaro. Nothing special, she says I can even pick the color.
