I would like for everyone to celebrate with me, as I passed a major parenting milestone this summer.
…wait for it….
EVERYONE CAN PUT ON THEIR OWN SEAT BELTS IN THE CAR NOW!!!!!!!!!
Can you believe it?
Now, to those of you who don’t have little kids, or have forgotten what it’s like to have little kids:
This is a big deal.
I have spent SEVENTEEN YEARS buckling people into car seats, kneeling on crumb-covered carpets and upholstery, handling sticky buckles and straps, maneuvering past struggling arms and legs. BUT NO MORE!!!
Now I sit calmly in the driver’s seat of the van and I say cheerily, “Buckle up!” and they ACTUALLY DO IT!
