double edged sword!!

I have today finally realised , reluctantly, that my 'baby' is all grown up! Today she took her driving test and.... passed!!!

i know you will all understand how this makes me feel - sooo proud of her, on the one hand, and absolutely terrified on the other!!

As soon as we got back from the test centre, she drove herself to work - which is not too far away - i was soo chuffed for her - i can remember when i passed my test and how weird it is to sit in the car and not have someone next to you!

Slight sticking point this evening as she wanted to drive out to the boyfriend's - as she has never driven in the dark before her father put his foot down and said no - she had to drive a few times with someone with her when night driving!

so this duly has happened and off they have gone!

sometimes its hard being a parent!!

Congratulations at passing her test. I remember it well with my eldest three... you do stop worrying everytime they go out... eventually!

Aaak! That is too grown-up for words!

Well done to your daughter on passing her test - it's quite an achievement, I still remember passing mine.

It's hard this daughter-growing-up thing, isn't it?

Congrats to your daughter on passing her test.
It is tough sometimes when they grow up and become so independent.
Hope you are enjoying your day.

Huge congratulations to your lovely girl on passing her test!!

It's such a huge step for both of you!

I know exactly what you mean, as mine gets closer to that age... I get nervous just thinking about it!!

Congrats to her - a great achievement! There's nothing like being able to transport yourself to make you feel independent. Must be nervewracking for you though!
