“Too tight! Too tight! TOOOO TIIIIIGHT!” This is what Lydia screams every time I buckle her into her carseat. She hates it being tight around her shoulders. And sometimes I acquiesce. Sometimes I pull the release lever just so she’ll stop whining.
BUT WHAT IF?
What if we got in an accident and her seat belt wasn’t strapped correctly?
What if I pulled out too quickly? Or was talking on the phone? Or *gasp* texting?
WHAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENED?
I would never forgive myself for caving. For preferring silence to safety.
