He did it again

I feel so relaxed. I have a work-day today but when there are no kids there it’s still like a vacation. An old teacher once told me that on workdays if she didn’t do anything but talk to other teachers and pee she would just be getting caught up! LOL! Very true!

Those of you that have been reading here for a while have heard a lot about my kids. They truly have my heart. Now LJ, my first born, has had me wrapped around his little finger since the moment I knew I was pregnant. Mollie often rolls her eyes and calls him ‘special boy’. It’s said with affection these days as they have gotten much closer over the last few years.

But those of you who have been reading here for a while know that LJ had one major flaw and it has flared up once again. I love him to death – but the boy can’t drive!! Yep, he wrecked another car. If you don’t remember LJ has had 4 speeding tickets (all 45 in 35 zones), one for running a red light and he totaled the first car we got him when someone stopped in front of him on an off ramp and LJ rear ended him. This time he was pulling out of Collin’s drive way. A neighbor was waiting to turn in and motioned LJ out, he came out and someone pulls around neighbor and smashes my boy. No one hurt, thank goodness. LJ didn’t get a ticket but he was at fault. Sigh…

I doubt we will have the car fixed; we’ll just sell it for what we can get for it. It would probably cost about what the car is worth to fix it. So, sorry son, two cars are my limit. He’ll just have to find a way to get around on his own for these next 6 months. If he wants another car in the future he’ll be buying it himself!

It’s funny – he told me the other day “Mom I’ll be happy to get rid of my car when I graduate. I know nothing about cars. If it doesn’t start one morning my only thought is ‘Car’s broken guess I need to replace it.’ I think I’ll do better with buses and subways – if they break down someone else will handle it.” I believe the boy is right, New York might be right for him.

Both my kids are wonderful! I am the luckiest mom in the world. They are each so different and have so many talents – but if I ever need a lift, I’m calling Mollie!

I recognize that "Sigh..." feeling when our kids make poor choices. But we still love them to pieces don't we? You say you feel lucky, but your kids are, too! LJ sounds like he's got himself pegged - not that much into cars. Hope your work day is good. Happy Holidays, Meow

PK, yes you are lucky in your kids, but your kids are even luckier, they have you as a mom.
LJ is wise, much less likely to kill or get himself killed using public transport, and I only use cabs now.
Have a good day.
Love and warm hugs,

Lucky me Michael has only had one accident. I'm with you though, my pocketbook would only be good for so many chanced. Michael's a good driver, but he doesn't get much practive anymore. He gets around LA on public transortation. He gets around campus on God's transportation...his two feet!

I think calling Mollie for a ride is a good plan!

Love and Huggs!

Meow and Paul,
I really do thank you for your thoughts I guess all moms spend some time thinking that our kids turn out well in spite of us, not because of us. Which ever it is I love the way they have turned out.

Just read your post. Glad you can still say this! I'm ready for public transportation for our boys!

Enjoy it while you can. It will be here before you know it.

Thanks, that was the only important thing. I am looking forward to Christmas with the family. I hope it is great for you and Ben too.
