    My mommy let me drive today
    although I'm only three
    She put me in the driver's seat
    then turned and said to me

    "You can drive the car today
    just hold on to the wheel"
    She stood back and I took off
    and let the tires squeal

    I passed a man with a walking stick
    He smiled and said "Hi there"
    I kept my eyes on the road ahead
    The wind whipped in my hair

    I looked out the window and saw a girl
    with a big red lollipop
    So I tried to hit the brakes
    because I wanted the car to stop

    My quarter ran out just in time
    and I said to mom with a grin
    "Next time we come to Wal-Mart,
    can I drive the car again?"

      lol Aww thats so cute. It made me laugh.
    I kept picturing a little kid driving a car.
    I thought I saw a dog driving a car once, but it turned out that the driver was just leaning back and the dog was on his lap. It was disappointing.
    lol Anyway, I enjoyed the surprise ending.
    This is written wonderfully too.

    You're very talented.

    Good stuff

      Interesting way of reflection the expience of childhood as an adult when I was little they didn't have a walmart here or cart shaped like cars or carts with tv showcasing dora the explorer or bob the builder. In any case I won't was to much of your time reminissing. On to bussiness. I'm sorry i can't spell anyway in your poem you have gone for a bit more free for and it works for the most part hear are my only concerns

    "and turned to say to me" + "as the wind whipped in my hair"

    In both these lines you are going for the rhyme and it's more free form however i think you'd benifit here from rewording.

    And turned to say to me simply seems a bit off i'd use said instead of say, I'm no grammer marvel but it seems better tense wise.

    As for the next part
    You used seven sylables in the two lines previous "He smiled and said "Hi there" In this line there are eight" "as the wind whipped in my hair" It's a subtle difference that I wouldn't adress except seven would mess up the rythm less plus it's an easy fix. Unless your apposed to dropping as from the phrase, i'd do just that it doesn't appear to help steer the driver towards their goal and the current flow causes tailgating so I'd just drop it it's not part of your ryhme and rather meaningless I tend to bable and digress sorry again. peace
