Buckle Up For Safety

January 27th, 2010 | Posted by Alison Spath in Parenting

Recently, the girls spent the day with my mom and my step father. My step dad happens to be named Dave, and Ava and Maxine affectionately call him “GrandDave”.

Ava loves all things volcanoes these days, and after watching a volcano movie at Granny and GrandDave’s house during their visit (yes, they still get to watch TV at other people’s houses!) a little discussion about volcano safety ensued between Ava and GrandDave:

Ava: When a volcano erupts, the lava goes real fast and you have to run real fast to get out of the way of the lava flow. Sometimes you can’t run fast enough and you die.

GrandDave: I would help you get away. If a volcano ever erupts, you call me up and I’ll jump in my truck and come get you and drive you away from the volcano real fast.

Ava: Umm GrandDave… You don’t have my car seat in your truck.

I guess you can never be too safe, right?
