When our Twins were smaller, we have fabulous car seats that were 5 point harnesses and we kept the boys in them until they were well beyond the legal requirement. We wanted our boys safe as possible. One of the Precious Moments of my Parenting came when we were leaving town on a road trip and we were all set: bags packed, gasoline filled up, GPS, and we were off.
This precious moment includes our young babe crying...I was in the passengers seat and I tried to talk to our son. I tried to give him water, a toy, etc. I was hoping to keep our son calm while my husband drove. My son began to cry louder, I reached back to hand him his blankie, hold his hand....nothing was working.
My husband pulled the car over safely and put on the hazards opened the door to talk to our son and see what was making him uncomfortable. He was pulling on his car seat. His harness was not completely snapped and HE KNEW IT! That moment will always remind me of each precious moment we have. It also reminds me to be safe! Buckle UP and double check yourself. Right! My son knew that secure feeling of his 5 point harness car seat buckling him up.
