    Just When You Think Things Can't Get Worse...

    Well.....many of you know the trials and tribulations of Disneyland Daddy........well, just when things seems to be getting somewhat 'calm' in our lives.......what happen? Yup - we get into a car accident.

    It wasn't a major accident, and it wasn't our fault....but it happened yesterday, February 6, approximatly 3pm PST. Anyway, per our insurance company (State Farm) we were told we need to replace the car seat - DONE (almost $300, but will be part of the claim). And then today, we get the estimate - $550 approx. And work can be done in the same day, as they are just replacing the back bumper of our 2005 Ford.

    Anyway, were ok - Grant got checked out at the Doctor lastnight AFTER we got him his new carseat at Bergstrom's (across the street from Disneyland).....and we are pretty good too.........but it's just bothersome, you know? Just ANOTHER THING to have to deal with.

    Anyway - just more of a 'vent'. Thanks for reading!

    It was like $292 - but we had a $20 off coupon. It's what we paid for the first one.......so we aren't gouging the insurance........Britax "Boulevard" model. We got black/charcoal model...

    Well that just totally sucks. Sorry to hear it DD.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    $300 for a childseat
    Spare no expense for our children! Then again, we do tend to have a warped sense of values when it comes to our kids.
    Just countin' the days til the next visit!

    That sucks! Plus side: no one was hurt. But things will get better right.

    Glad you guys are okay! As my dad would say, that's why we have insurance, and it will all work out.
    A signature should go here.

    Sorry to hear that DD...

    I have to ask this question thought. Was the other person on their cell phone?
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    I am glad to hear that you guys are OK and that Grant is safe because he was in a good quality car seat that was installed correctly.

    Re: Just When You Think Things Can't Get Worse...

    Glad to hear that everyone is fine , those expensive car seats are well worth the cost. And my understanding is once a car seat has been involved in an accident the insurance co and manufacture wants it replaced. My dd had to replace a britax after a fire inside her Durango.
    Lifes little annoyances erggg......
