Safe and Sound ~ Blog Train

When my kids were younger, we played a little game every time we got in the car. It went something like this:

Me or Mike: “Seatbelt check! Megan?” ~ ~ Megan buckles up and says: “Check!”

Me or Mike: “Amber?” ~ ~ Amber buckles up and says: “Check!”

Me or Mike: “Adam?” ~ ~ Adam buckles up and says: “Check!”

Our rule: the car didn’t move until everyone was buckled up and “checked” in. I’ve even surprised co-workers and friends when “seatbelt check” slips out of my mouth when they get in a car with me, but it works! You ride in my car ~ you buckle up! It’s important to me that we all arrive alive, safe and sound! I dedicate this blog train mini kit to seatbelt awareness and 100% use. Here’s my preview ~ you can download my kit here (freebie link removed 11-20-2010).

Amen to the seatbelt check!!! If people saw the end results of going through a windscreen they would buckle up very quickly but unfortuately it is always a case of "it won't happen to me". No-one gets to go in my vehicle either if they won't wear a seatbelt. You don't like it don't go in my car.

Thanks so much for the freebie kit.

Adorable kit and good theme. Play a little game with my 2 GDs when they are in the car too. We don't move until I hear the work 'when' from each of the. When we get in the car, I usually say, 'say when, I need to hear 3 of them' and that includes myself. If I don't say 'when', they remind me. Thanks for the kit.

I was at one point a non-seatbelt wearer do to two major car accidents in our family that had we been wearing a seatbelt our life would be over. The 1st accident happened when I was 4 and had I had on a seatbelt I would have died in the crash but luckily I fell to the floor in the back seat and lived with no injuries. The 2nd was when my mom was hit (drivers door) while driving my car. She flew to the passenger seat which saved her life except for a couple of minor injuries. However, my husband works as a professional truck driver and he harped on me everytime I didn't buckle up. Now I wouldn't dream of letting anyone in my car not wear a seatbelt. Thank you.

This is a wonderful theme and cause to dedicate your blog train contribution. Your elements are so precious, and the word tags just on its theme. Thank you for this awesome, colorful, and relevant kit. (Seatbelts can make the difference between tragedy and life.)
