Default Car Seat=Lifesaver!

Hey everyone! So I have yet another story to share, tonight I was driving home from the gas station with Ava in her new car seat in the back seat of my car (photos of car seat posted in one of my threads).
I live in the woods as some of you may know, so deer are notorious for running in the road.
As I was driving, out of NOWHERE an entire family of deer come running across the road! I'm talking auntie deer, uncle deer, grandma and grandpa deer, the whole dang family!
I had to instantly slam on breaks as well as the vehicle behind me! My purse when flying, my phone went flying, and my arm flew to the backseat to reach for Ava immedietaly!
I can honestly say if it wasn't for her being secured in the seat she would have gone flying. Still a little shaken up from the thought of that.. I just got her car seat a week ago and I'm so, soo glad I got it when I did.
I love Ava so much and if anything ever happened to her I would be absolutely crushed! The car seat was definetaly a good investment for Ava. I'm glad I can share my scares with you guys, lol. Thanks for reading!

glad that you are both okay. Isn't is strange how things work out? I mean, you just got the carseat and here you are, almost in an accident! Phew! I always have MIya in my lap driving. She has a crappy carseat that I don't think would do any good anyway. I ordered here a secure one about 2 weeks ago. After reading this, I will def have her in it from now on when we drive. I would never be able to forgive myself if something happened.

I used to have Ava sit in my lap as well (very comfortable!) but then figured I'd get her a car seat for some extra security, definetaly perfect timing! It makes me feel much better when she's in it. Glad you have a car seat on the way! Hopefully you won't have the scare I did!

So glad that you are safe!! That's why I would love a car seat but I havent found one that would fit between 2 kids car seats.

I swear I think 95% of the deer population lives in SC, I hate going out of town because of this.
