Carter + unrolled window = trouble

Perhaps this is something that I should have known, but I didn't even think twice when Carter asked me to roll down his window. It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny, why not let the boy breath some fresh air? After months of freezing cold temps, rain and snow, we were all long over due! I guess I learned my lesson - only roll it down a crack, otherwise foreign objects could be thrown. In this case, Carter's shoe. Which I didn't realize until we got home. Then I was so mad I didn't know what to do. Off we went to try to find it. Luckily he was able to tell me the general location and thankfully the shoe landed in the median of the road. Shoe retrieved. Crisis averted.
If I hadn't been so mad, I would have laughed really hard. Seriously. He thought it a good idea to throw his shoe out the window?!?! What's up with this kid? This little event did give me new found appreciation for my parents, though, as I know that I put them through much worse. My time is just beginning, I'm afraid.


  1. Great story! I would have rolled my window down too! You have an adorable family! Good luck with the bottles.

  2. Well, that's a boy for you. He was curious of course! Just wanted to know what would happen or in Ian's case...wanted to see JUST how mad mommy can get.

    Good thing it was retrieved....I thought you might need a pass to the Employee Store!

  3. LOL! I am so thankful for window locks or I know I would be hunting down lost items along the roadside all the time.
