If its gonna happen...

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Its gonna happen to me. Today, being at home I let my son play in my car - a nice large red lauguna with his babies. These consist of three teddies and the complete set of the Fimbles - stupid little wierd colored things.
So I get in the car as my wife fancies some prawn crackers and I look at the passenger seat. There is a fimble with the seat belt fully over it and strapped in safely.
I called my wife over, both had a laugh and off I went. On the way back from the Chinese take away, I got stuck in traffic and rolled to where there were flashing blue lights- police check thing - there is a huge concert near here tonight.
My window down I get asked by the young police constable where I am going and I explain home from the takeaway - prawn crackers sat on the floor in a bag. Then he pokes his measly head in next to mine and sees the damned fimble cuddly toy sat there strapped in. he started laughing, I died a death - but not half as much as when his mate then looked in the back and there were the rest of the fimbles and a couple of teddies all belted in.
I looked round to see them all sat there all belted in and I just died of embarrasment in my seat. These things are about 8 - 12 inches in size.
They waved me off in fits of laughter to proceed home. So far my wife has not shut up and will not leave me alone. I keep saying at least my teaching about always belting up is working, that has so far not worked with my wife who is still smirking through her prawn crackers...
It has taught me to always check the back seat and when Christopher gets up in the morning, daddy here wants a little word and is doubt ful if he will get to his 4th birthday on 5th September!

I'm not sure what a fimble is. . . . or what prawn crackers are. . . . but the mere thought of stuffed animals all buckled in with no children in the car cracked me up!!

Thanks for the laughs, Kev.

OMG that is so hilarious. But the good thing is, he knows that its important to be buckled in!!!! He just wants to keep his toys safely buckled in.

Here are some fimbles:

Hey, Kev! Your training obviously worked. I think this is your guardian angel, showing you that ya done good, and giving you a giggle at the same time. Not too shabby!

He's just got a great sense of humor like his dad! Nothing wrong with that.

He'll certainly make a great dad some day if he shows this much compassion for his little "fimbles".

Kev,

How cute! I'm sure you didn't think so at the time. Can you imagine what the policeman thought when he saw those stuffed animals? You really can't blame them for laughing. However, Chris was just making sure that those he loved would be safe. I think it is adorable.
