One Decision

A hard to watch PSA, but an important reminder as the days get hotter: don’t leave your kiddos in the car when it is warm outside, even for a few minutes. The majority of children who die of heat exhaustion in cars are actually left there accidentally.

I like to do a quick little glance into the back seat every time I get out of the car as a matter of habit even if I’m 100% positive I am alone in the car. :)
