Immediately Aidan, our 5 year old, asked if he could drive my car tomorrow. I said no, maybe on Saturday, though. Right away he went off to Teresa and told her that Daddy had said that he could drive the car on Saturday.
When that statement was greeted with a somewhat strained silence, he added with great assurance: “it’s perfectly illegal!”
Here’s the video. Enjoy!

So I did it – I let Aidan (5) and Ethan (8) drive my Mini. Kind of gave my heart a good workout.
I found a nice parking lot, let them sit in the driver’s seat (I actually had to sit behind them) and drive the car. Ethan freaked me out when he pushed the gas pedal hard, but fortunately we were still in Park. Of course, they loved it, and maybe we’ll try it again sometime … in a decade or so.
