    so trivial......but such a big thing for me and I believe other moms of difficult child....

    This morning I sent difficult child to camp in the neighborhood carpool... :biggrin: I didn't have to drive him myself....First off, no one usually offers to drive difficult child...second...I've never been comfortable...what if he has a problem....what if he doesn't listen etc...

    He's really made so much progress !!! Two weeks of camp done and all has gone well...

    YEAH!!! I think that is great. I have never carpooled either because I am TOOOO nervous. I did let him go home on his first afterschool playdate once last year and he did well so I totally know how you feel.

    NOT TRIVIAL at all!! In fact, just the opposite, AWESOME
