Embrace Life

One of my OCD tendencies has everything to do with seat belts and car seats... nothing grates on my nerves more than seeing a little kid in the front seat or kids buckled together (sharing a seat belt) or not buckled at all. I loved this video that Ryan found... it's such a great reminder of the importance of buckling up, every single time you are in the car.

Please, buckle any children (and adults!) that ride in your car correctly!

I love that! It made me teary eyed!

I too am very OCD about seat belts and car should have seen the strongly worded letter I wrote about the proposed law to change booster laws so kids could ride home from school without them. Everyone should wear seat belts all the time. No exceptions. Car accidents are the leading cause of death in children under 14. :(

Loved it!
Thanks for the reminder!
In Cancun it was kind of scary to have little David without his car seat while on the bus. But yeah, car seats and buckling up... SO IMPORTANT!

I have been called the car seat Nazi by my family members. We had a pretty terrifying accident a few days before we were married. It changed me forever. It only takes seconds before everything in your car can be turned upside down or thrown all over the freeway. Keep everything, including objects in your car and especially your kiddos tied down. Thanks for sharing that beautiful video. I may do the same on my car seat nazi-run blog. :)

Wow. That was amazing. I couldn't figure out where it was going - then bam. Really I loved it. What a great reminder. I must admit I double buckle sometimes.
