What Am I Teaching Them?


My girls were playing Barbies this morning, when I overheard the big one say this....

"This lady cant drive because shes a mommy, and this lady cant drive because shes a mommy too, but this family has two mommies and no daddy so this mommy drives because they have places to go and they don't care about the rules."

Face-palm

Who taught these kids that mommies cant drive?
Oh wait, I guess I did.
I've been caught in that damn trap of them learning through my actions again.
I don't drive. I never have.  I keep saying I'm going to, I even own a vehicle, but I just haven't gotten around to getting my full licence. And now my kids think its against the rules for a mommy to drive.  
I guess its time to move that particular point a little higher on my to-do list.....
Why cant they just do what i say not what I do?

  3. I love hearing what the kids have to say. There are a lot of moms who do not drive. I got my license when I had three kids and was in my 20s. It opened up a whole new world.

    1. It's funny, my goal was to get my licence by the time I turn 30, I have less than 2 months left.....

  4. It's never to late to learn. I taught my mom how to drive when she was 48! She's 77 now!
