- It's probably viral
- Check E. Cheese
- Parent-teacher conference
- I couldn't find any clean underwear (don't ask)
Then, one day, I picked up my oldest daughter from school (last year) and she laid 5 more on me, right in the middle of the high school parking lot:
"I started driver's ed, today!"
I knew this day would come. Dreaded it more than anything (even hot flashes) actually.
"I GOT IT...I got my driver's license, Mom!!!"
Okay, I lied. I could never have imagined the combination of relief and nausea I felt, when realizing...YES...this was really happening...as of last month...my sweet baby girl is now a legally licensed driver!
"I'm borrowing the car and taking Hope to the library, okay?"
It's been 6 weeks (to the day) since Holly got her driver's license and, I have to admit, I'm getting used to the idea (sort of) especially, when helping to get her siblings to and from summer activities.
Until, I realized, my middle girl will be turning 16, this year (YIKES!) and very, very soon, I will have 2 licensed drivers in the house.
It's like when they were younger, only, now I find myself in a perpetual state of parental nausea.
So, when the good folks representing Allstate contacted me about their Good Hands Roadside Assistance Program, I was more than relieved to learn that their service is available to everyone and other great features, including:
- You do not need to have Allstate insurance to use this service
- You only pay when you use it, there are no monthly fees
- Pre-registering for Good Hands Roadside Assistance provides faster service at time of need on the road. Those that pre-register will also receive a welcome kit in the mail containing a wallet card, key fob and window cling with the phone number for roadside help.
- You can register for up to 5 users on your account
You can register for Allstate's Good Hands Roadside Assistance Program by using this widget -- you DO NOT have to have an Allstate insurance policy to enroll in the program:Now that we have a new driver in the house -- not to mention, my middle girl following close behind and most likely sharing the same car, you know, the one I drive, as well -- I believe it is very important to introduce teens on the basic fundamentals of taking care of a car, as well.
Still, it's nice to know, in case of an emergency, Allstate's new roadside services provide 24/7 assistance, including:
- Tire Changes
What's also great about this new service is you pay as you need it and when you need it, ONLY: in most cases just $75 per tow and $50 per other service.
So...YES...I'm a little less nauseous (thank you!) knowing there is a service dedicated to helping my kids stay safe while they're on the road (me, too!)
