It Can't Be True!
I may be in a bit of denial. It simply can't be true. My Cheney Alan turned 17 yesterday! 17!!!!!!! How did this happen and exactly when did it happen? This past weekend, I scrapbooked some pictures from his third birthday and I have a hard time believing that was so long ago. I guess it was, though. Cheney is now way taller than me, has a man voice, shaves his cute little face and as of yesterday, he has a driver's permit. (In NJ, you have to be 17) So, last night, against my wishes, he headed out from church in his sister Ashleigh's car. This would not have been strange, except this time Cheney was driving! Wow! Am I old, or what? I have three children that can drive. What in the world is going on? I was very nervous for Cheney to drive in Ashleigh's car. I pleaded my case, that it was dark out and he shouldn't really drive for the first time in the dark. Well, I was overruled. And since Ashleigh truly potty trained her sister was she was only 3 years old, I figured she should probably teach Cheney to drive, too! Anyway, I ended up being two cars behind him and he did a great job.
