In Laws

Do you have any crazy stories about your In Laws?

Mine: My MIL used to watch my daughter a couple of days a week while I worked. When she was 6 months old, my MIL came to my house to pick her up to go somewhere and she made me put Lydia in the carseat. I couldn't figure out how the thing worked so I asked her and she told me that she didn't know. I knew she'd taken Lydia places before so I asked her how she'd been getting her buckled in. She told me that the straps on the seat were so tight that she didn't buckle them. She just left them loose. Wait - it gets better! The straps were lose on Lydia so I figured out how to tighten them. When I did, I showed her and she was flabbergasted to find out that you didn't have to put the baby's legs through the straps too. Poor kid. She'd been riding around in the car with her knees up in her armpits because my stupid MIL didn't know how to work the carseat. I can't imagine what would have happened if she'd wrecked.
