Ben learned how to drive and I didn't even know it! After Pre-school on Tues., It was raining. A co-teacher waited with the kids while I got the van. I got Micah out of the stroller first and buckled her in her car seat. I got Ben, folded up the stroller and was going to take them to the van at the same time but hesitated and decided to come back for the stroller. I put Ben in the van, told him to get in his seat, and went back for the stroller only ten steps away. As I turned back around, I saw the van rolling away with Ben in the driver seat. I have no idea what came out of my mouth but I started running! Thanked God the doors were un-locked and running, trying to catch up with it, I finally jumped in on the passenger side. I through the gear into park but it failed to catch. The gears were making a loud grinding sound as I reached over to press the break pedal with my right hand. We finally stopped less than 50 feet from several parked cars in the doomed path. Another teacher came around to Ben's aid as I tried to regroup. I was choking on my heart as Ben kept repeating "I'm sorry Mommy, I'm sorry Mommy," With a clouded mind I tried explaining how dangerous it was. Ben said,"That was funny!" I said "NO BEN, that was NOT funny!! That was scary!"
Karate was exciting. AJ finally started on Thurs. He gets his GEE next week. The class was pretty big. I was surprised at how many people were there. I can totally see AJ excelling at this!
