I have spent countless hours in the car driving my daughter and now my granddaughter to their soccer practices and games.
The only rule I had is no one could access their cell phones during the long drive.
During the long drive, I learned a couple of things:
1. I’m not as smart as I thought I was. I learned things that I wanted to know, and I learned things that I didn’t want to know, usually on the same trip. I learned which kid was mean to another kid. I learned which boy was looking at another girl, etc.…
2. I realized that it is much tougher being a kid today than when I was a kid.
Also, during quiet spells, I would provide stories about my own growing up, which my passengers would find hilarious. So this blog will be the retelling of these stories.
