My Son Was in THAT Car
Last week, my son was in a car accident and the car he was in flipped. He is okay. The driver, our beloved babysitter, is also okay. I... I am still recovering. Both of them, miraculously, walked away completely unscathed. I was told by the fire department, police officers, ER doctors, and trauma team that his car seat saved his life. I hope parents think about car seat safety as seriously as I will now... What is the rush to get them out of traditional 5 point harnesses? For convenience? Because they're friends are doing it? Who cares. It's not worth it.
I'll be haunted by the "what ifs" for a long time. But I hope my message touches others and maybe even helps save a life.
