More about Daniel’s day yesterday~*~*~ a news item that is shocking~*~*~a shock here too

As i mentioned yesterday our wonderful next door neighbour Dee made Daniel a birthday cake. I invited her and her two children around for afternoon tea. The rest of us had muffins while Daniel enjoyed his cake.

Then we all enjoyed playing with the bubbles Daniel got from playgroup yesterday. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.

I wanted to share this with you. It is simply shocking. I dont understand some parents at all. See this link. This story was on the news the other night. Parents have to be responsible. Little ones lives depend on it. I was so shocked to hear that there was no thing holding this little one in at all meaning that every time the driver went around the corner the baby would have rolled from one side of the ute to the other. SHOCKING and SAD. As the reporter said carseats can be hired cheaply. And what amount of $$ is the life of a wee baby.

I circled this photo of a ute to highlight where the police said the baby was datsun-1200-ute-back.jpg

This morning I was working on here and was aware that it was blowing a gale outside. Daniel was asleep thankfully. Otherwise I might have had a crying baby to deal with too. Next minute BANG!!!!!!!!!! SMASH!!!!!!!!! I got a fright. The french door had somehow rattled opened in the wind (it had been locked) and flown open and smashed. I rang Muzz and asked that he come over earlier (hes babysitting tonight) with some wood and then rang the landlord. The landlord said he’d get someone around today to fix it – hope so.

  2. wow that’s a sad story, it’s very very common though. There are so many parents out there who don’t restrain their children in the car.

  3. Thanks Rachel. Yep the door is all fixed we were surprised the landlord got on to it so fast – some of you may remember in the winter he had to take our back hall carpet away when the sunroof got a leak in it. We still havent got that carpet back. In a way its a blessing as we had a leak from the laundry not so ago and it would have wreaked the carpet. However Muzz still maintains that the landlord should have replaced the carpet.

    Amy I was shocked about the baby I am aware that a lot of parents dont restrain their children as they should but to put a baby in the back of a ute is just unthinkable!!!
