remember cute lil jaden?

"daddy. can i sit in the front seat of your car on the way home? "
sure.
so we put the baby in the car seat. get our stuff ready to go after a lovely lasagna at bubbe's.
crashing and screams later.....

jaden got INTO THE CAR...LEAPED OVER AND LOCKED the other door so he could be only kid in the car. knocked the brake off.
the car goes down the driveway, hits a 2 foot rock, knocks it out in the ditch, and rests atop.

luckily the neighbors have a floor jack cuz they are mechanics and a few spare floor beams later...

the car if out. needs a new bumper, trunk repair, a dented gas tank, paint, dents in the side of the car...

teaswap pal... thanks for anawesome box! boy do i need a "bloomin" cup of tea!!!
editted to add: the carseat was in the livingroom. she never made it in, that was just as tirzah screamed. we all thought there wasa mauling dog loose on the kids... jaden is ok only b/c daddy and pa stayed away from him for a few hours!! ;-) kezzi fell apart after cuz she tried to get him out as it started to roll and was terrified! poor mama kezzi, jadey is her baby after all.

So, do you know how dad got to Jaden? I think he flew over the railing. He doesn't remember, but I think Dad can fly. And from what dad says, with Jaden's blank "I don't know" and "nothing" I am beginning to think he was in shock. If not, there isnt a roller coaster built yet that can scare that boy!!!! Just everyone else!

Thank God only the car was hurt and not your precious ones. Sounds like a Calvin and Hobbes comic come to life.

Thank goodness Jaden is OK - but boy would I be upset!! Glad you have wonderful teas to calm you!

Ok, Spencer and I disagree on whether Tali went into the abyss with Jaden? Was the car seat in the car when you strapped her in or did Jaden fly solo? We are both happy to hear that only the car was damaged. So, Sam is unbreakable, huh?

And, if I know you like I do, you are probably smiling today. I am so glad you added the part about the baby not being in the car when all of this happened. Ok, boys have to do their thing....but, why the heck to they have to scare the beejeebers out of us when they are doing it? Even my heart was racing and I wasn't even there! Love, hugs and kisses are being sent your way.
