Oh yeah. It's nap time and I'm sitting down with some milk chocolate covered Grahams from Starbucks. Today Judah and I went and ran errands and while at Haggen, I decided I should buy a package of the Via instant coffee from Starbucks, decaf of course. Well, if you bought a package, you also were entered into a super cute giveaway and you got a free package of these chocolate covered graham crackers. Score! I wanted to eat them in the car on the way home but, I decided to have self control and munch on them while Judah was napping. Plus, if I ate them in the car, I would've been hearing "Maawwwrrr" coming from the back seat . That translates to MORE and that's what Judah says if he'd like to eat whatever it is that we are eating. I would've had to share and that would just be silly!
While we were in town, I saw a car that had a small child riding on the lap of the person in the passenger seat. It was so ridiculous. They had a car seat in the back but, the child was riding in the front on a lap. I was driving behind them and I called 911 to report what was going on. I gave the operator the license plate number, the car description and where we were located. She said that she would notify an officer. Well, I followed them for about 15 minutes, just waiting for them to get pulled over but, I stopped following when they got on the freeway. An officer never came! It was so frustrating to me and it still bothers me. The child was probably about Judah's age and if they were to get in an accident, the child would most likely die. Since they had a car seat in the back, I'm guessing that the child just didn't want to ride in the seat and so the adult let them ride up front. I don't care if my kids screamed the entire car ride every single time, I would never let them ride up front on somebody's lap. It's just not worth it.
I guess that's just one of those situations where you can do the right thing and then you need to let it go. I'm not very good about letting things go but, writing them down helps me. Well, my graham crackers are gone and I need to go outside and clean up after the dogs. Not my favorite chore but, at least the sun is shining!
