Okay, I told her i wouldn't phrase it quite like that, but she IS my baby, all 16.5 years old! Well, she just passed her road test and is now a licensed California driver.
Probably a good thing that I am almost totally gray so it won't be much different when more grays pop out as she starts driving by herself.
Overall, I am really very happy for her, as this is one of the many rites of passage into adulthood and I am happy for her. She is a good driver so far - and she has a good head on her shoulders, so I am proud of who she is and confident of her growing up to be a valuable citizen of the world.
Still.... she is my baby! :-)
