DMV Written Test

Today is an exciting day for me as a Helicopter Mom.  My son passed his written exam for his driver’s permit.  I was praying the entire time we were sitting in the DMV office.  It took him no more than 15 minutes, which scared me at first.  I expected him to take at least 30-45 minutes this time, especially since this was his 4th attempt.  Nonetheless, he came over to where I was sitting with a big smile on his facing and said, “I am 150 percent sure I passed this time”.  He was extremely confident.  I on the other hand, was not.  I told him to take his time and again it seemed he’d rushed through the questions.

Well we waited for about twenty minutes for the clerk to correct his test and call his name. As soon as his name was called, he jumped up and rapidly walked over to the clerk.  I followed behind, but with hesitation.  The clerk looked up and said, “Congratulations, you passed.  You scored 100 percent, got ’em all right kid!”  My son, peered back at me and said, “I told you”.

Wow, I doubted my son’s confidence when I shouldn’t have.  What else is new?  I should have more faith in my son as he is very responsible, he knows right from wrong and he actually has some pretty good goals for his future.  He is planning to attend college right after high school.  His goals are a bit ambitious, as he plans to apply to an Ivy League college next Fall. Only drawback is his GPA is not up to par.  At least, not Ivy League par.  But, I can only pray for the best and let him know I believe in him and that he can accomplish anything he puts his mind to.
