Oops...

This is what happens when you run like a nut all day long every day. Over the last 2-3 years I have had 5 "mishaps" in my garage or driveway. Luckily this one did not involve my mother in law again. Though she is a really good sport! The moral of this story is to remember to close the back of your van before backing out of the garage. The reassuring part of the story was that when the glass guy showed up to fix the window he said I was the second mom that day who had done this! And the garage door took minimal damage.
Please don't fear if I drive your children somewhere. I have a good track record on the road. Just watch out on the driveway. If you happen to park next to me in a garage just do what Bill does and park as far away as possible.

No wonder you weren't at dance last night! I'm glad no mom's or children were injured in the making of your public service notice to moms ;)

I know exactly what you mean though! We really get in a hurry! I was late for co-op one morning and Todd made the unfortunate mistake of parking his new Corvette behind my van. I backed out of the garage right into his car! I grateful that I now have a backing-up camera ;)

I'm so sorry...but I am busting out laughing right now!! I'm just glad it was you and not me! LOL! Seriously...with as many rushed days I've had, I'm completely shocked this has not happened to me...or Austin! I'm so glad no one got hurt!
