Recently, when Mommy was fetching Juan Or back from the babysitter's house to our new house, Mommy was stuck in a horrendous traffic-jam. Then, suddenly out of the blues, when Mommy turned behind to glance at Juan Or, Juan Or was already standing at the back seat! Mommy then quickly asked Juan Or to get back into the baby car seat but he refused. So Mommy asked him to at least stand on the floor of the car while holding the front car seat from behind. Instead, much to Mommy's horror, Juan Or wriggled his way out to the front part. Since he was already at the front and still standing, Mommy ordered him to sit down to which he didn't comply. Then when the traffic-jam started to move a bit, Juan Or jerked as a result of the inertia, but Mommy was prepared by blocking with the hand. That was when Juan Or realized he needed to sit down, so he sat down obediently. When the traffic came to a halt shortly after, Mommy quickly strapped the safety belt onto him and instructed him to hold the strap (that runs across the chest) a little so that it wouldn't touch his face so much. And much to Mommy's surprise too, for the rest of the journey home, Juan Or obediently sat still while holding the chest part of the strap and did not at all attempt to wriggle his way out of the safety belt. Juan Or is a big boy already! ^ ^
As soon as we reached home, Mommy checked the safety belt of the baby car seat. Apparently, the safety belt was still intact. Mommy's first thought was,"Huh, Juan Or has already become an escape artist!?"
From that day onwards, Mommy put Juan Or to sit on the adult car seat, stacked two baby pillows to act like a booster seat and strapped him on. Till today, Juan Or did not attempt to wriggle out from the safety belt. Guess Juan Or probably prefers to sit with Mommy (even though the safety belt does touch his face a little) than to be at the baby car seat.
