Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a safety fanatic, especially when it comes to my kids. MIL took the kids to Wal-Mart the other day in FIL's truck (without consulting me first, mind you). Olivia was all excited because she got to sit in the middle. Upon further questioning, I learned that MIL didn't put her in a carseat. For some reason she thought Olivia was now old enough that she didn't need one. *Banging my head against the wall* Where on earth does MIL get these ideas?! I told her that by law Olivia still needs to be in a carseat. Here I am all sad about giving up the 5 point harness for a booster seat because it just doesn't seem safe enough, and MIL is driving Olivia around without a safety seat at all! So yesterday she talks about taking the kids to town again in FIL's truck. I had to explain to her - again- that Olivia has to be in a carseat. Arg! Sometimes I just don't have the patience to deal with people.
