I find myself chilling on the couch on a Sunday night browsing blogs and sipping on a glass of red wine (both kids are fast asleep and I’m feeling like I’ve just won a string of Olympic medals for putting two kids to bed which should be a celebrated sport – #JustSaying) and I came across this fantastic article on PregnantinCapeTown which is about the importance of using car seats for children.
The grandparents came to babysit this afternoon so hubby and I could steal some us-time and have adult conversation (which now seemingly always revolves around the cute things we saw the kiddies do that day) and as we stopped at a busy intersection, I saw a brand new cabriolet with a couple holding a 3 year old on the passenger’s lap? The roof was down and the child was on the lap of the passenger? I mean, seriously? There is no excuse to endanger a little person’s life. Car seats are not inconveniences – they are essential safety devices!!!
