3 going on 17…

On this crazy day, my darling daughter, enroute to the infant’s emergency doctor’s appointment this morning, sitting pretty in her carseat, asks me, “Mommy, can you teach me to drive?”  I was so flabberghasted and could only respond with, “Excuse me?!” “Mommy, can YOU teach me how to drive?!”  Wow, my 3 year old has often been described as 3 going on 30, but this time she was batting more like 16 or 17.  I was laughing so hard and yet she was very serious!  How do you tell a 3 year old that she’s not old enough to drive especially when she does grown up things like audit a class at Columbia University’s prestigious School of Nursing?
