Buckle Up Behind

Was driving one day and out of the blue Dotter pop up this question:

Dotter: Mummy, you got RM300 or not?
Mummy: *shock* What is the money for!
Dotter: Di-Di (Brother) didn’t put on seat belt.
Mummy: *wakakakaka*

I was thinking the other day. Usually on our long rides back to kampung, the 9y/o will be sprawling (not strap up) at the rear seat sleeping, and the 7y/o will be sleeping in his car seat. That left with no more space for the 4y/o and she will usually strap up with Mummy in the front seat, sleeping. Yes, must travel during their nap time so that they won’t turn the car upside down. With the new enforcement to buckle up rear seat passenger, I make a little adjustment here. And of course spent a little $$$ so that everyone will travel in comfort.

Since the 3 kids need to be strapped up at the rear seat and I have to think of a way so that they can sleep more comfortably, I get a new booster seat for the 7 y/o and now his 4y/o Sister can have her car seat back. Bought the booster seat at S$26 only and if according to my conversion rate optimization they are only RM62.40. Cheap eh? How about the Big Sista? Initially I planned to get everyone a neck support pillow but too bad, they left only one pillow on the shelf. And my initial, initial plan was to get a inflatable pillow for easy storage. This is the result from last minute shopping so I just grab whatever that is on the shelf and they cost so much for a foam pillow! If the Big Sista is using them, this left the 7 y/o without any neck support. Let’s see which Sista is generous enough to lend their shoulder to lean on. You know how some siblings never allow their sibling to touch them further more, have to endure those saliva dripping. *yikes!*

    I was just thinking of the same dilemma myself. Kimberly is usually sleeping on the 3rd row seat while Ashley is strapped to her reclining car seat. Now I have to move Kimberly to the 2nd row and recline her seat with her booster seat on and I’ll bet that is not going to be very comfortable either. Reading your post reminds me that I can dig out all those unused neck support.

    BTW, what happened to meeting up at the Curve? I guess it’s too late now hor?
