Do You Put the Pedal to the Metal on the Way to School?

Most moms are cautious drivers unless they are running late. When it comes to getting their precious cargo to school before the bell, lots of women put the pedal to the metal so their kids aren't tardy. Last night on Parenthood, Julia and Sydney's quality time in the car was interrupted when another mom and tot cut them off in the carpool lane. The situation had working mama Julia, who was already in a rush, fuming. Do you ever find yourself becoming a bit of a road warrior or getting an attitude in these types of situations?

That's cute, Girl Jen! She does't go to school yet, but I too believe in 'arrive alive'. I don't speed, talk on the phone search for my glasses and the glove departement when she's in the car with me. My husband used to always check his Iphone while driving. I told him I would never let him take her anywhere if he didn't stop.

I get all my rushing around done at home so I don't feel the need to road rage or speed. I talk to my daughter about driving, hoping she'll realize that driving takes a lot of concentration and no I can't pick up the paci she has dropped. LOL She points out the colors of the lights, the stop signs, the road signs, buses, and other cars. When she sees a cop car, she tells me, "It is a police, Mom. He haves to turn on his lights and tell you to don't drive fast."
