I don't understand people. I'm seriously about to report them to the police.

We have my SO's grandkids all weekend. Guess what, they dropped them off without car seats, AGAIN.

These kids are never in car seats. SO said to me just now, as I was ranting hysterically, that he's never seen the baby in one.

SO claims I am over reacting because he never put his boys in car seats when they were little. HELLO, idiot man, we did not have car seat laws 26 years ago!

When they get home I am telling them that the next time I see those kids in a car without a carseat that I am reporting them to the police. They are going to end up in a wreck and dead or injured.

  • That's all kinds of screwed up, every one of my friends have been given extra car seats for my girls just in case . Well the ones who take them on a semi regular basis. Maybe try garage sales to get a few cheap ones just in case this happens again.

  • See if you can pick up a cheap one at a consignment shop or garage sale/yard sale. Ask friends if they have any laying around. Getting 3 new ones can be expensive. The booster seats aren't but the one for a 1.5 y.o will be.

  • after stating my concerns i would call in an anonymous tip the moment they left my house. i would probably also refuse to watch them if they did not have car seats.
