Our daughter’s elementary school was a place where parents would park their cars and then walk children into school. However, they recently opened an optional dropoff line. I’m grateful that it’s optional because some days, getting my kiddo out of the car takes quite a while. There are stray Lego pieces to grab, snacks to throw into her backpack, and the not-that-rare need to slither out of her booster, then ask for help when she’s stuck in an unwieldy position. So we need that time.
Did you know car seats expire? Car seats have a lifespan ranging anywhere from 4-12 years. The expiration date may be stamped in the plastic, on a sticker, or you may need to calculate the time based on the date of manufacture.
