Sling-back shoes save a life

shoeee

There’s a country and western song that goes like this: “throw your shoes in the backseat, drive home in your bare feet.” It had to do with shoes that pinch.

Now I hear there’s a better reason to toss at least one shoe in the back especially if you have a baby on board.

babyI find it hard to believe that any mother would ever forget her baby in the back. But we hear stories all the time about babies dying because someone forgot and left them in the car.

Someone came up with the idea of putting one of your shoes in the back seat with the baby.

No one would reach their destination and leave without their shoe. I don’t know what it says about our culture if people are more conscious of their shoes than a helpless baby.  But this seems like a good idea to spread around to the forgetful young parents in your circle.

I once left a loaf of bread in the car in 100 degree temperature for about 10 minutes.  It turned to toast.  If my oven breaks, I’ll just do my baking in my auto on a sultry summer day.

  1. EMILY, THE SHOE IDEA IS GREAT….JUST LEAVE ONE ON THE BACK SEAT AFTER YOU BUCKLE UP YOUR BABY. IT’S SO SIMPLE. THIS IS A GOOD IDEA FOR GRANDPARENTS ALSO. I WOULD BET THERE ARE MORE MEN THAN WOMEN WHO MAKE THAT HORRIBLE MISTAKE.

  2. We need to spread this idea through the entire country to save the lives of innocent children. No one forgets a child deliberately—–but, we all make mistakes.

  3. I was just told an attorney in Philadelphia, Mississippi left his child in the car just last week. Of course, the child died. Tragic.
