Today I was rushing out the door with my 3-year-old to get him to school and me to a meeting. There was an icy rain/snow mix in the forecast and I knew that I'd be running late inevitably.

When I got him situated in his car seat, big coat off and draped over him, I forgot to BUCKLE HIM IN!!! I didn't notice until I got him out after we got to school, probably because his coat was draped over him. He was happily eating his Mickey Mouse waffle in the back seat while I drove for 10 minutes, all the while unbuckled! I feel like such a careless jerk Thank goodness nothing happened.
