I'll ask again.  Is your child secure in that car seat?  Is it securely fastened? Is it facing the right way?  Is it in the front seat or the back?  Things to think about, especially this week.


I remember that car seat thing very clearly.  I always buckled him in securely, but the seat belt was usually all tangled, and sometimes I will admit - the seat was a little loose, but I said to myself "good enough - I don't drive that fast".

Bad, bad, bad thinking.  You can't overstate how important this first step is when you are ready to zoom out of your driveway for parts unknown.
