Thanks to Ginger for this Frugal Baby Tip!
I read all the posts a few weeks ago about the car seats kinda halfheartedly - I mean I'm NEVER going to be in a wreck - right? WRONG!
Yesterday morning, for some reason, I decided I just had to tighten up the girls' seats. I remembered someone saying how they basically climbed in, and used their knees to tighten them up as much as possible. So I did that, and took up about 2" from both of them.
Yesterday afternoon we were involved in a major wreck (to me at least). My van is probably totalled, and the other car definitely is. My middle daughter bumped her head cause she had the shoulder belt behind her, but she's okay. The car seats held firmly.
My seat belt came undone somehow, and I ended up in the back with the kids. This morning we are all bruised and sore. So please don't ever ignore or brush off the importance of seat belts, and especially those car seats! If not for them, my kids might be really hurt today!
