I never could figure out why women drove around with the "Baby on Board" signs on their cars. I figured it was just a mom-badge of sorts, but served no real purpose. That was until Tuesday morning... As I was driving into work (reminiscing on my fantastic baby showers this past weekend - more to come on them soon!) I looked in my rear view mirror and saw a red pick up truck racing toward me. The driver jerked into the left lane and I saw he was on his cell phone. Great! He immediately began to jerk right back into my lane - and into me! I slammed on the horn, and was forced to drive off the side of the road. Thank goodness there was no one in the lane next to me! Everyone around us stopped -I'm sure they witnessed what just happened and were panicked like I was. The red pickup truck driver stopped for a second, shrugged is shoulders, gave me a quick wave, and went on his way. WHAT A JERK! Luckily everyone was fine, and there was no damage to my car (or the baby!). But it made me think - maybe, just maybe, if I had the "Baby on Board" sign on my car, the driver would have been a little more cautious when driving by me. Needless to say, I am headed out to buy one tonight. This is precious cargo I'm carrying!
