This past Valentines Day, I got myself a dog. She’s a collie retriever mix and is the sweetest thing alive. I absolutely adore her. This being said, I like driving her to the park so we can play and frolic. I soon began to notice a change in my driving habits, I started to drive slower, became more cautious, kept checking on her to make sure she was ok, etc. And it hit me last night, as I was being passed and honked at by another car, I am turning into my dad!! OH EM GEEEEE!!!!
This is only a taste of parenthood, but I’m starting to understand why my parents are so cautious about driving. I guess what I’m trying to say, is that when you really care about someone, you make a choice to keep them safe. It’s not just something people talk about, it is a change. A change in lifestyle, not just for ourselves, but for the one’s we love.
