Time flies
 
Well, my babygirl (17) just bought herself a car (2000 Ford Taurus). She saved up for every penny and paid for it all by herself. I just got back from her driver's test for her license. It seems like only a few years ago I was changing diapers. Even though she's an excellent driver (for her age) I'll still worry.

Bear, I don't have kids but I agree....time flies!

I'm glad to hear she saved up and bought it herself. I did the same and I learned what it takes to buy things and how to appreciate things. Put a speed limiter on that thing!!

Got her own car...
won't be seeing much of her now.

Bear:

First off, congrats to you and your daughter - buying her first car is a major life milestone, especially given that she paid for it.

As far as worrying goes, you'll continue to do that for a long time yet!

Bittersweet, huh?

I just had a thought....

Imagine yourself being the brave young man who wants to take bear's daughter on a date......you're too young to carry....the attraction is overwhelming but the fear is defening in your mind. You ring the doorbell and suddenly there is a large man with a 45 on his hip and the barrel of a shotgun in his hand(the rest is on the table behind him). My heart goes out to that young man and I wish him well.

Baby Girl all Growed up
 
And you thought you had sleepless nites when they were in Diapers. Spare the rod Spoil the Child. Pull the keys at the first sign of abuse of said vehicle. Good Luck, Remember, Talk, Words, Advice, But most of all Love and a tommorrow for the both of you. God Bless Her Car That in times of trouble she will live to see another day. Wills in da swamp in La. One Shot One Kill...... P S Now you have a cheufer to the Range.:eek:

I have daughters (granted, they're a few years younger), and I feel no compassion for that young man...at all...as a matter of fact, I hope he falls down and cuts his scrotum.

Sounds like a responsible young lady, Bear. Good job.

I know that feeling. My boys are 7 and 10. That went by way to fast!
