Look at my girl with her placement at 10 and 2. A pro already
Oh dear. It’s OK Add–it is only a game no matter how seriously Daddy is taking it (note Dad’s arm). Daddy was really into his—err her game.
By the time the driving lesson was over, it was time “to eat”. Many french fries and no less than 3 very loud “Happy Birthday” songs to other patrons later, we were ready to go dishwasher shoppin’.
Afterward I thought a lot about how Mike wanted so badly to take the wheel from Addie and Addie wanted so badly to control it–even if that meant she would crash it.
This seems so much like many scenarios in parenting and spiritual matters.
In parenting–it is hard to know when to take the wheel from her and when to let her take it whether she sails or crashes. And, I am sure that will only get harder as she gets older.
In spiritual matters I am sure God has wanted to jerk the wheel from my hand a time or two–and in fact has. But I– like an all knowing 2 year old– complain to Him to “give it back” and drive myself right into a wall.
