We got home last night with little Mac in tow. Well, actually, he was in the back seat, safely restrained according to our state laws. You can’t tow a kid; not in Michigan (lower peninsula)!
The big trick right now is keeping his head safe — can’t bump it, hit it, stand on it, etc. Explain that to an 18 month old and all you get is “ball”. We also have to keep him from sleeping on his stomach for the next six weeks. My mom suggested loosely tying his wrists down, which explains a lot about my upbringing. But it raises a good point — how do you stop a baby from sleeping on its tummy? Answer = Car Seat. It has buckles but its not inhumane. Perfect.
Thanks for praying for us. Emily and I have a great family & wonderful friends. Psalm 127 says that children are a reward, a blessing, an honor. We don’t take for granted what we’ve got and what we’ve been given through this. We’re thankful!
