I almost met my maker today after picking up the baby from the Redhead’s Daycare.

I had just buckled him in his car seat when this gold coloured mini-van drove straight for me. Jake’s carseat is on the driver’s side of our van – street side. I leaned into the van as much as I could. The driver must have been bending down for something cause just at the last minute he corrected himself and continued to drive off down the road. I can’t believe he just kept driving! He was seriously within inches of hitting me and our van.

We (hubby and I) were a little flabbergasted to say the least; standing there afterwards eyes wide open shaking our heads in disbelief.
