My Life as a Single Mom of Two...

WHY IS IT THAT EVERYONE KNOWS BETTER THAN ME? UGH!!! MIRIAM IS TURNING 8 THIS WEEK, AND AS STATE LAW, WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO RIDE IN A BOOSTER SEAT ANY LONGER. MY ISSUE WITH THAT IS, SHE IS SMALL...SHE IS SHORT FOR HER AGE, AND WHILE NOT SKINNY, SHE'S NOT OVERWEIGHT EITHER. ANYWAY, I ALREADY EXPRESSED TO BOTH KIDS THAT THEY SHOULD STAY IN THEIR BOOSTER SEATS AS LONG AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THEY MAKE THEM SAFER....AND MIGHT AS WELL SINCE WE HAVE THEM AND I BELIEVE THE WEIGHT LIMIT IS 85 LBS OR SO AND BOTH KIDS WEIGHT 55.....

SO, THE X PICKS THEM UP AND SAYS THAT HE BOUGHT THEM BOTH THE SEAT BELT ADJUSTER THINGS SO THEY WONT BE USING THE BOOSTER SEATS IN HIS CAR ANYMORE. HE HATES THE BOOSTERS IN HIS CAR, AND HE SAYS THEY MAKE THE KIDS FEET RIGHT IN THE WAY OF HIM PUTTING HIS SEAT BACK....(UM, WELL, YOUR THE DAMN IDIOT THAT BOUGHT A 2 DOOR....)

NOW FOR ONE, MY DS ISNT EAVEN LEGAL TO BE RIDING WITHOUT A BOOSER ALTHOUGH HE IS TECHNICALLY TALLER THAN DD, AND IT JUST REALLY BOTHERS ME BECAUSE I HATE THE THOUGHT OF THEM RIDING ON THE HIGHWAY WITHOUT THEIR BOOSTERS.......

BUT THEN AGAIN, WHT THE HELL DO I KNOW.....I AM JUST SOME LADY THE BORE THESE KIDS AND SPENDS 95% OF THEIR TIME WITH THEM......BUT I GUESS I DONT HAVE A CLUE......UGH!!!!!

Jun. 1, 2008 at 2:29 PM One of my daughters is 4 '8, 85 lbs. In the state of NH she should be in child safety booster seat. The only problem is she is 24 years old!  I kept her in a booster as long as I could.

Jun. 1, 2008 at 2:34 PM My son is 7 and weighs 87lbs. and my daughter is almost 9 and weights 57 lbs. and they are and will be for quite abit longer will sit in their booster seats!  They feel safe and comfortable!  The only time they don't is when they ride with other people and boths times my son got carsick because he couldn't see out the window!  Hopefully that will be happen to your ex!  That would serve him right LOL!
