Rites of Passage Have Never Been More Frightening

A few months back, Katie came up to us and wanted us to take her to get her learner's permit so she could practice getting her driver's license. At the time, it didn't seem like that big a deal. She had to take a written test to make sure she understood the rules of the road and I was all for it. It's good for her to know them! It's good that there are requirements for knowing the rules before one actually starts driving! Look how responsible our child is!

Yeah, uh, I kind of forgot that getting her permit meant she would actually be allowed on the road. In a car. Behind the steering wheel. Driving. Granted, it had to be with another licensed adult, but still. That meant one of us had to be in the car with her while she was in control of the vehicle. Thankfully I was smart enough to dodge that bullet! However, Harry wasn't so lucky...



  1. Oh bravo! This is brilliant. Exactly what we need around here.

  2. How neat! Love the story and love the art!
