But the car is a cruise ship man. It's very boxy,dark navy blue and looks like an FBI van. If I parked on your street you would start flushing your pot. It also has automatic sliding doors on each side. One time my sister and her ex-boyfriend were sitting in the backseat. The car doors slid open at exactly the same time. And they tumbled out at exactly the same time. It looked like a raid.
I was thinking about my car because I went on a booster seat binge today. In fact if booster seats were Cheetos and Dr. Pepper I would be the girl sitting behind the 7-11 stuffing her face. 4 new boosters for 2 children in 4 hours.
Daughter and I went to KMart and she lost her shit over a hot pink $13 Cosco booster. When I looked at the box I saw that she met all the safety requirements. Over 30 pounds and taller than a doorknob. We got one for son too because his was just crusted with McDonald's barnacles.

But when I saw wee little daughter sitting in that booster I realized that those things are the equivalent of sticking a stack of phone books under her ass. They prop her up a bit higher but she can (and will) play around with the seat belt or slide down into her seat to grab a fallen piece of Pirate Booty. And so would son for that matter.

Yes you will." and then made me watch this awful and sad video. I immediately called husband and asked him to tell me what to do. He responded with his usual confident reply, "I don't know man. I'm at work." So I
But now it was driving me nuts that we had these 2 non returnable Kmart death boosters that I wasted $26 bucks on. Then husband reminded me that we were the new t-ball coaches and might need to drive some of the other kids home. He said they could sit in those boosters. I'm all, "Yea! Screw those bastards. Put 'em in the cheap seats." Then he called me unreasonable and asked what was for dinner.
