As of yesterday we are now required to put Amanda in a booster seat when transporting her from here to there. The new law went into effect (in Michigan) yesterday and states that children under age eight must be in a car seat or booster seat unless they are 4'9" or taller.
This law is probably a very important one for the safety of children, yet I HATE to be told by the government what to do, how to do it, and when to do it - ALL OF THE TIME. Thankfully, we kept our booster seat - in fact we have 2 different kinds - and won't have to buy another one. On the down side, Amanda hasn't had to be in a car seat for the past 2 years and now she has to be restrained in one all over again. Six of us riding in Josh's car is tight fitting at best and now we have to squeeze in a car seat every Sunday for church. It's that or nothing since Jeff has our van every Sunday morning. Phooey.
I wonder what folks will be told they have to buy tomorrow.
