I remember the day we changed my son's car seat to a forward-facing position: It was on his first birthday and he had reached the seat's height and weight limit (we actually got him a new seat and installed it on his birthday). He was so excited to see out the front windshield, and as we drove around, I could see him straining to see more of the road.…Continue

We all know by now that stupid situations are drawn to me like white on rice. I honestly don't seek them out. They just somehow always find me. And this probably explains why my 2012 SUV accidentally found its way into an antique auto show over this past weekend. Only me, right??!…Continue

1. Laundry Baskets – When we saw this idea, we thought it was brilliant! Keep one or two laundry baskets in the trunk of your car. We are sure you can find multiple uses for them, but the use that we were really excited about was grocery storage. Put your groceries in the laundry baskets to keep everything contained while you are driving. This prevents a bunch of grocery bags…Continue

Each summer I always cringe when I hear sad stories on the new about parents or daycare workers accidentally leaving a child inside of a hot car, in some cases the child was only left alone few minutes. As a mom, I always wondered how and why these kind of things happen to an infant or child. I know that I personally make sure that my kids are out of the car…Continue

Ever make plans to go somewhere, and it doesn't pan out the way you expected? Yet, where you do end up ends up being some how, uh, better? Well, yesterday my sister and niece came over for a visit and our intent was to check out a car show, because car shows are cool, lol. I had no idea it was canceled, so after driving all the way there and seeing the location deserted, I had the bright idea to just go to the Marina and enjoy…Continue

I swear my husband gets his jollies by trying to embarrass the crap out of me. He's always enjoyed putting the car windows down and driving around our neighborhood with the radio blaring full blast. And believe me, I've seen many an eye roll from our fellow neighbors whenever we go thumping by. It makes me wanna slump down in the seat and pretend like I'm not really there, even…Continue
One thing that really confused me was picking the right car seat. There were so many different types and all the descriptions I read said I really needed "this one" because its so great because blah blah blah. My eyes glazed over and I moved onto something more fun like baby dresses because I just didn't want to deal with picking a car seat. Then a friend of mine told me to register for two because blah blah blah... it was already hard picking one now I need two? So…Continue

It was a red minivan, actually. We had just pulled into the driveway from picking Troy up from preschool. There were several neighbor kids walking home from school across the street. As all four of my kids and the two pups spilled out of our car, a couple of the kids asked if they could see the puppies. Jason and I walked across the street with the pups. I looked back towards the house and Derek and Troy had climbed the tree at the end of the driveway. Everyone seemed so safe.…Continue

As overly cautious as we are about protecting our children these days, it's a wonder any of us survived our own childhoods of yesteryear. Heck, many of us probably rode home from the hospital on our moms' laps IN THE FRONT SEAT OF THE CAR (without a seat belt, no doubt)!! All this fragility makes me wonder if our kids are missing out on some of the good…Continue
