I let our 18 year old take Matthew in the car by herself yesterday. I made her drive the minivan though She is a really good driver and I know she would be really careful.... and a better driver than her father for sure

She wanted to take him to work to show him to her co-workers. I had just fed and changed him so I told her she was safe for about an hour before he would need to eat again. He came back to me sound asleep and happy as could be. Man did I miss him for that hour though!

That was the first time I have let anyone take him anywhere.... even Dave hasn't taken him out without me.

You are a brave woman! I know it is hard to push past that super protective feeling. I am glad he was so happy & perhaps you can do that more often & give yourself a few moments of down time.

Its hard for me to let them out of my sight too But its good you were able too. My Mom was always so protective of my youngest surviving brother she wouldnt let me take him anywhere for years, and I always felt it a bit unfair. Of course i'm older now and can understand her feelings better, she had to hang on to the last one too tightly after losing the too many.
