Kaitlyn is constantly warning us that we are coming up to a stop sign, the color of the lights and what they mean, informing us that we are/or should turn left or right, giving us directions if she knows the way to get where we are going (which she seems to remember with amazing precision after going anywhere once or twice!)
I'm just in AWE... I don't think I paid attention to any rules of the road or directions to anywhere until I was learning how to actually drive. It was a whole new world to me, she seems practically ready to be on the road now.
Joey doesn't do to that extreme - but if I stop at a sign or a light while he is in the car with me, he always asks why we are stopped. I explain that the light is red and that I can't go until the light turns green, or I tell him that I have to let another car go before I can go.
However, every time we come up to another red light, I ask him what a red light means, and he will answer with 'stop!' When it turns green, I ask him what I do, he thinks, and tells me 'go!!'
I have a back seat driver, but it's not so much telling me which way to turn, which he does do a lot of the time, it's more telling me I'm going the wrong way, which I am not doing.
Both boys love to find out where I'm going and what direction I'm taking to get there. They do kind of know the way home after a certain point...familiar areas, but if it's unfamiliar, they just tell me I'm going the wrong way, even if I'm not going home. I've had to remind them the better question is, "Is this the way?" Otherwise, it's rude to question the driver and his or her directions.
