Watch out Fort Worth...


Once the Stock Show and Rodeo has left town, there'll be a new driver on the road.

After Friday's post I had to take Sonshine to the local DPS office to take his written exam for his drivers license. Only we couldn't find his Social Security card, which meant a trip to the Social Security Admin office to get some form verifying his number. Then back to the DPS. Only to be told there was a two hour wait just to take the written exam.

But, believe it or not, we had a little luck. A while back I'd noticed them building a Drivers License Center near to our house. As luck would have it, it opened Thursday afternoon. We left one DPS and rushed over to this new facility and were in and out in less than two hours!

So my baby is now permitted to drive a car as long as he has a licensed adult driver over the age of 21 in the car with him. He didn't feel comfortable hopping in the truck and driving home though, despite it being back roads the whole way.

And no longer do you carry a paper permit for six months. He'll have an honest-to-goodness plastic card in the mail in a couple of weeks.

Congrats to Sonshine! And to Mom as well. Your days as chauffeur are numbered!

Can you smell it? It's the sweet scent of FREEDOM.

Okay, you're a mom so it may be tinged with a bit of worry smell as well, but hey, bad with the good, right?

Anyway, once again, CONGRATS SONSHINE!
