Adrienne - Hope it's okay that I started this....
I agree with Ash 100%.
Thanks ladies for all the advice. Now I feel horrible that I drove around like that but I did send my BIL and SIL an email yesterday with some information from our state's website about car seat laws, and highlighting the bullet point about making sure the clip is at armpit level and the straps are snug. I also reminded them that there's a certified car seat tech at our police dept. They probably won't respond to my email but at least I put it out there and if I have to drive my SIL and the baby again (they only have one car so that's why I had to drive because my BIL works far and needs the car to get to work) then I will make sure she has him secured properly otherwise we're not leaving the driveway. LolIn other news, my DH is driving me crazy with WTT. Last night we watched 'Switched', a cute PG related movie with Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman. Well I guess it got to DH because when we were going to bed, he says, "I think it's time for another baby", and I'm like "we still have the insurance issue" and he goes "well you need to find a job soon with benefits". Ugh, here we go again! He seems to think I should start a new job and then get PG right away. I don't think that would look good and plus I'd only have maybe 2 weeks of PTO just starting so that means I'd only get the 6 weeks of FMLA. I've told him repeatedly that #1 - I'm not putting an itty bitty baby in daycare (no offense to anyone else, just my personal issue) and #2 - I'm not working FT with 2 kids in daycare. I agree with him that we're not getting any younger (I'm 32 and he's 35), but we have some logistics to work out first, most importantly get insurance with mat. coverage, before we can even think of TTC. If we don't get new insurance then we won't have mat coverage on our existing policy until fall 2012, which is longer than either if us want to wait but for right now, we have no choice. I'm thrilled he's on board with TTC #2 but I just told him that it will happen when it's supposed to. Argh, so frustrating!!!
ChristineI wish my DH would say things like that. I have the feeling I will have to persuade him again to TTC but we will see. I am hoping he goes with summer 2012. He kind of agreed to it but said he would not set an official date until we talk after David turns 2.

Hi Ladies - I'm doing things from memory here...
