Something terrible almost happened this morning to Kaylie and it has literally made me sick all morning. I keep replaying the image in my mind and I just want to point out to others the importance of being so careful when your children exit vehicles.
I pulled into the school this morning to drop Kaylie off for school and there were 3 cars in front of me and at least 1 behind me. Kaylie quickly jumped out of the truck with her backpack on and her drink and waffles in her hand. She shut the door and I started to pull up (only for a second) but looked in the side mirror and didn't see her so I immediately stopped. All of the sudden I saw her pop up next to the truck, I said, "what are you doing?" And she said, "MOMMY - I dropped my Capri Sun under the truck and went to pick it up and you moved!!" I almost died!! I told her please don't ever go under any vehicle when it is turned on no matter what!! I told her I loved her and she went into school but I have not been able to stop thinking about it. Let this be a lesson to myself and everyone about the importance of being so careful with our babies. Thank GOD I stopped, I seriously thanked GOD the whole way to work. Okay - I'm going to try and stop thinking about it for now...but tonight I'm going to have a talk with Kaylie again about the importance of her being safe around vehicles.
