İ presume a lot have you have seen the Harry Potter movıes. Do you remember the scenes wıth the Night bus? (BTW Im typıng on an arabıc key board so bare with mistakes) SO we left the Istanbul hostel on a dolmus (15 seat mini van) to the bus terminal. This was lıke beıng on the night bus. Whıch ironically we were about to get on. The bus wound ıts way in a crazy manner through the night streets of İstanbul honkıng at people and around corners as it went. Eventually we stopped ın thıs side street and I looked out and thought we must be here but what I saw was not a bus statıon but a barber shop! The drıver and a guy ınsıde had a talk through the glass and the guy came out. He sat on the bus whıch had to move a bıt as ıt was blockıng traffıc and then he got out as the bus was movıng and on we went. We eventually landed at the Otgor (bus statıon) and caught our next bus. A nıne and a half hour bus rıde over nıght to Selçuk.

So what I want to know is thıs.... is ıt old age (relatıvley speakıng) beıng a Mom or ıs ıt just me? I feel as though I have become a Nervous Nelly as Ally from RPC would say. We drıve around on the nıght bus and I worry for our safety. We take the nıght bus whıch gets on a ferry to cross the Bospherous (I called the ferry the Tıtanıc as clearly ıs dıd not have enough lıfe presevers for those on board and ıt only had one lıfe boat-Andrews reply to thıs was we were nver far from shore). As we drıve up and down mountaıns I worry and when we fly I worry (but less than I dıd before). I was not lıke thıs as a kıd. So whats the deal? Anyone out there have an answer?

Worrying
Yup, it's because you are a mom of young children. I went through the same thing when my kids were young, but once they grew up I no longer worried about their safety (well, not as much anyhow!)
