My lovely daughter pretended to fix me up tonight. I am experiencing the worst “Aunt Flo” of my life right now. The worst! I told her that my tummy hurts when she asked me what was wrong and why was I lying on the couch. She gave me 2 of her french fries, pretend cotton candy, and pretend band-aids (on my arm – LOL). She rubbed my tummy, cheeks, and hair and then she danced for me to the Go, Diego, Go theme song on Noggin. After all of that, she kissed me and told me I am “all better now”.
Well, she may not have cured my cramps, but she sure did make my heart feel warm and fuzzy.
Anne commented today on another post of mine regarding child booster carseats. I want to bring this up because what she said and the links she sent may very well have saved our daughter’s life. Who knows? I hope and pray we don’t ever get into an auto accident. But, incase we do, Brianna will be very well protected now. Parents (and grandparents) take note and please see the comment she posted on “Saw It All in 30 Minutes”. If you have a child in a booster carseat who is less than 65 pounds you ought to seriously consider buying a new seat with a 5 point harness until the child weighs more. If you are a family member and you are interested in the one she recommends (which is the one I bought today for Brianna), then we’d be willing to donate $50.00 towards your purchase. That’s how important I believe it is for you to put your young child in the right kind of seat.
So, here’s to Anne (my Higglytown Hero of the week).
And, Anne, here is the precious life you may very well have saved. I can’t thank you enough.
And here is the carseat that may not have done the job (booster by Evenflo)
And here is the new carseat that we know will keep her a ton safer (Nautilus by Graco – $155 at WalMart).
