I wish our children was more like me and like Todd, he was like me as well...Cook Kids. In the past twelve months we have had three of our five children who can drive lose their license. The first; this driver never paid the tickets issued to the driver for not having the license plates updated as well as no car insurance. In Iowa it is illegal to drive your car without insurance. The other two were picked up for drunk driving. This is the most frustrating one. Why? We have always made it clear to the children if they had too much to drink to call us and we can come pick them up, no judging, no anger. I had to call my older two boys once because I knew I was too drunk to drive, they came and picked me up. I wanted to set a role model to all of our kids. The latest driver to lose privilege happened over the holiday weekend. *sigh* I know it is tough living in Iowa City where the University of Iowa is. The biggest downfall of the University is it has been in the top 10 party Universities in the Nation. I am not proud of that. I am proud of all the other good things with the University but this is not one of them. I just don't get the kids. They need to be cool like I was.
This leads me to my song of the week. This song keeps playing in my head all week so I thought I would participate in My So-Called Chaos Musical Monday party. If you want to join to, click on the icon.
I truly love the sound of this song and I also like how it shows we all have problems. Enjoy!
