We have just purchased a new car and with a new car comes the inadvertent fear of making a dent..! There is nothing that would scare a new car owner than a dent.
Our parking space has a few pillars and requires expertise to skillfully park the car. I currently fall under the aspiring-to-become-expert category so I pale everytime I have to park our car. Fortunately, GK assists (screams with the you’re-going-to-dent look) with the parking.
One evening, Pogo and I went out for a play-date and we found ourselves at our mercy whilst parking.
After quite some struggle and panic attacks later, I successfully parked the car. As I pulled to a stop my beaming co-passenger says “wow mom, you did it…! hurrah..! ”
Beaming back at my wonderful son who understood my pain and waited for me to succeed to share my joy.., I couldn’t resist the urge to treat him and off we walked to the nearest ice cream parlor..!
