A couple of months ago, Rachel got a new carseat. Instead of the five point harness, this one uses the seatbelt to strap her in. Recently, Rachel figured out how to unbuckle herself. As I cheer her on with her newly acquired fine motor skill, I cringe at the thought of her being in control. Fortunately, she does not tend to do this when are going down the road and just uses her new skill to get out of her seat when we are stopped, thank goodness The other day, I had to stop and run into a store. I left Rachel and Allison out in the car watching a movie. Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone! When I got back into the car, this is what I found!
Apparently, Rachel did not want to stay buckled in her seat and would not stop walking around the car and messing with the movies screen. Allison decided to take matters into her own hands and strapped Rachel down. I guess she figured if she put all the belts on Rachel, it would take her a while to get them all off. Rachel just seemed resigned to being strapped down and was just watching the movie.
