There are things in life that make us squeal with delight, marvel at milestones, embrace growth and change and at the same time 100_1555make our stomachs turn and nerve endings twitter with angst.

This is a great example:  MC got her drivers license and with that comes the request for the keys, the sudden interest in running errands and the moment when you watch your child pulling out of the driveway…on her own.

My heart raced.  I felt excited, nervous and a little sick all at once.

It’s so hard letting your kids go and trusting them to make good choices.  This,  the first of many involving the lives of others.  *sigh*

Who needs a colon cleanse when you have teenagers?

If you need me…I’ll be sitting on the toilet.
