Car Scare!

This week my husband and I switched vehicles.  He was heading to camp so he needed the van for transportation and I got the car.  I used to drive the car so I thought no big deal!  That is until...

I was driving down the freeway and my daughter had started to open her door!  I turned my head and yelled "Selah NO!"  I slammed on my breaks, thankfully no one was near me.  I was only a few feet from an exit and was able to take the exit and pull over and turn the child safety door locks on.  

As you can imagine my heart was pounding!  I am so thankful this ended with my daughter still in her seat and me locking the door so she has no way of opening it again. 

PARENTS please take the time and turn your child safety locks on!  It is on the inside of the door and very simple to make it lock or unlock.  It would have been so easy for her to open the door completely and fallen out of her booster seat.  :(  She was protected that day and I had a long conversation with her about how dangerous it was.  She felt really bad so that was good and I apologized for yelling.

Oh my gosh! Glad nothing crazy happened (ok, crazier). I changed my husband's lock on his car when we installed the very first carseat in the car. his coworker's laugh when they can't get out, but they get it. lol

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
