On the way to daycare this morning (yes! we found daycare! yay!), we got in a car accident. The other driver hit the rear door on my car and Jack was in the back seat. It was not a bad accident, and we are okay (just a little sore from the stress, I think, and Jack was a little freaked out but didn’t cry) but it scared the hell out of me! The other driver is clearly at fault but it’s still a huge hassle to have to get my car fixed (I suspect they’ll have to replace the door entirely) and get a new carseat for Jack.
I was so shocked that my car was hit that my jaw dropped and I just stared at the other driver for a bit before pulling over to the side of the road. I have never been in an accident while driving, never been pulled over, nothing. And I really wish Jack hadn’t been in the car when it happened!! For those of you wondering what the guidelines are for replacing a carseat after an accident, I found this nice checklist.
So my next question is, what is your favorite carseat if cost was not a concern??
