Probably not stupid....just incredibly distracted.

Had you started driving yet?

Sheesh. We make mistakes, don't be so hard on yourself. At least you didn't drive away and find out while driving you forgot to get your kid in the car, not that I've done that... It could have been worse though. Just try a little harder next time to remember

It's okay. I think everyone has done that once! Just be more vigilant next time. And at least he notified you! Lol

That happened to me a few weeks ago. I was about a mile down the road when I noticed and pulled over immediately. What's worse is df and my grandma was in the back with him! None of us noticed until ds was leaning half way out of his seat.

Lets just say we are super anal about it now.

I've done this once too. I took DS to the grocery store with me, when we left, I put him in his seat and started putting stuff in the trunk then left. We got 2 blocks before he said he wasn't buckled in. I pulled into a driveway, and buckled. It happens sometimes. Don't be too hard on yourself. Everyone gets a little distracted.

been there done that but it is usually I thought hubby was buckling in a certain kid and he thought I was and that childs belt was forgotten until I get in and ask if everyone is buckled. They will tell me if they are or not before we even start the car.
