A few years ago when some states were moving to ban cell phone use in cars, pretty much every mom ever responded with "Can we ban driving with kids next? Because they are MUCH more of a driving distraction than any cell phone conversation."
Not to mention going anywhere in the car with kids is like a military invasion: you have to gather snacks, fill water bottles, make sure the car seat is buckled just right, deal with diapers or bathroom needs...no wonder it takes twice as long to get anywhere when you have kids in the car!
And if you think your life is nuts, the latest episode of Moms in the Wild gives moms at the wheel the Randall treatment. And you won't believe what he sees!
There is one mom putting on makeup while she drives her kid somewhere. And we're not talking a quick one-handed, no-look swipe of lip gloss at a red light; nope, she's steering with her knees while she looks in the rear-view mirror to apply eyeliner in a moving car. Her kid is clearly not happy with this, and she's all "oh, calm down."
Seriously? The best outcome in this situation is she gets a serious eye injury, the worst is she takes out herself, her kid and who knows who else with her inattention. I'm guilty of talking on the phone in the car and inadvertently teaching my kid the word "douchebag" when referring to another driver, but come on, makeup application? Yes, I'm judging. Watch this and see what you think!
What's the worst thing you've ever done with your kids in the car?
