I think you all know that I am a little bit beyond obsessed with these little kiddos…..sometimes I forget that they aren’t actually my own children.
Billy and I got one of those phone calls yesterday (you know, the ones that make your heart stop and make you want to pass out a little bit).
All we knew was that my nephew and his father were in a car accident going freeway speeds (on the freeway) on their way to Salt Lake City.
This was their car:
Luckily, everyone is okay (because they were wearing their seat belts) and my best little buddy only suffered a concussion and a wicked black eye (it has now five times that size).
I don’t normally share personal family situations on the blog but I talked to my sister and asked if it was okay to tell you about the what happened for two reasons.
1. Wear your seat belt. That is what saved my lil’ best friend. The thought of what would have happened if HE didn’t decide to buckle up makes me absolutely sick. I am a drivers ed teacher and I am realizing that what I teach everyday in the classroom is something I should be spreading to other people too (via the blog).
2. Nothing else in the world matters except for people. It is amazing how a situation in which you feel as though you may have lost someone close to you makes you realize that any silly problem in your life really does not even come close to mattering.
All I know is that my family means more to me than anything.
I told him that I am his servant for the week…..if he wants a donut, he will have a donut. If he wants a new nintendo or something he will have it.
I think he is most bummed about not being able to be physically active for a while (doctors orders)…….he and his sisters love jumping from bed to bed and I guess that isn’t a good idea when you have suffered a concussion.
Have you ever been in a car accident?
