Close, but no cigar...

Well, I blew it. No perfect record for NaBlogPoMo for me. Oh well.

Last night was ladies night out in my world, and when I got home at 10:30, I really just wanted to crawl into bed and let the wine do it's thing. I realized about a nanosecond before I fell asleep that I hadn't blogged, but I was too comfy and cozy to care. And so here I am, a NaBloPoMo failure. I only needed to get through 3 more days. Alas, I suck.

Oh, and to anyone who read the comments on my last post, let us take a moment to appreciate the irony that I was making jokes about what a bad parent I am for letting my child watch DVDs and eat crap at Cracker Barrel when all along, the actual reason I am a bad parent is because his car seat straps aren't configured correctly. Go figure.

I will have to go back to the manual and see how to fix that because when I put him in there today, the straps are right at his shoulders and the next space down for them are 1/2 way down his back. Are they supposed to be 1/2 way down his back and then come up and over his shoulders? Car seats are an enigma to me. We read the manual, we think we're following all the instructions, he's still rear-facing, and yet we're still doing it wrong. Sigh.

Rear facing: straps below the shoulders.

Then once forward facing, straps above shoulders.

Hope that helps. Those things are hard to figure out & then when you think you have, the kid grows & the strap placement is off AGAIN!!! Best of luck!
