Where Fish Wear Seat Belts

Passengers: 1 Toddler, 1 Goldfish

Safety Equipment: 1 Rear Child Seat, 1 Front Seat Belt

The Outcome: 1 Toddler Buckled in Rear Child Seat, 1 Goldfish Buckled in Front Seat Belt

Internal Mommylogue: I’ve crossed a line somewhere.

  1. Whose idea was it to be a seatbelt around the fish? If your toddler–GREAT! Wow, what he has learned about safety. If from you–GREAT–the best kind of teaching–what a wonderful picture to demonstrate responsibility and caring. All the best, Barb


    • Thanks for stopping by! My toddler wanted to hug the fish on the way home and has shown…um… reluctance to wear a seat belt in the past, so this was simply a two-for-one teachable moment: 1. Everyone wears a seat belt. Everyone. 2. The fish survived toddler hugs.


  2. I remember seeing a picture of someone belting their bag of potato chips – that was too much. The fish is kinda reasonable.


    • The sad part is, if buckling up potato chips encouraged my child to willing buckle up, then sign me up! Ahh! I really have crossed a line! Thanks for the comment!


  3. I love it, I seat belt the chinese take out, pumpkins, watermelon and my large Dunkin Donuts to go coffee mug!


What do you have to say? The family and flock would love to hear from you!
