Near Death Experience

Reese almost got killed yesterday. We were in the middle of a crosswalk at a four-way stop and someone turned left right at us. I had to yank the stroller out of the way and even then the car passed within a foot of us. I was pretty shaken. I screamed at the time and cried after.

Moral of the story: look both ways before you cross the four-way. Especially if you're in a car and there's already a pedestrain with a baby in the MIDDLE of the crosswalk. Geesh. we weren't even just starting to cross, we were halfway there before the guy turned. He didn't stop, though he did slow down AFTER he passed us, I suppose in order to look back and make sure we were still alive.

I'm convinced that there are guardian angels. I'm grateful that my daughter is alive and well.

I, too, am glad everything was alright! Gosh, I hate stupid drivers. What I do like, however, is your new look on your blog (though I miss my now out of date photo, sigh) LOVE Reese holding the family candy bar. Miss you.
