We're All Alright

So last night sucked. After playing on the playground with the 'tora family for a while after day care, LP requested a visit to Leonard's. When our light turned green and we proceeded to cross the intersection, some jack-hole decides to run a red light and ram into my car.

Can I tell you, worse than being in an accident is being in an accident with YOUR TWO BABIES IN THE CAR?!

Fortunately, everyone was okay. Dee started crying immediately after it happened and LP just kept wondering when we were going to go and see the sheep. We pulled in to the entrance to Stew's and I immediately climbed into the back seat to make sure my babies were okay. A crowd of onlookers also came over to make sure everyone was alright.

Last night we took the girls to the pediatrician for a double check and they both got the thumbs up. Other than a bruise on my left hand from where I hit it into something and the dent on my driver's side door (which is really tough to open and close) you wouldn't know we had been in an accident.

Oh, and except for dealing with insurance. Fortunately the other driver has insurance, and admitted fault to the police officer that showed up on the scene. And at least one witness came forward to go on record that she saw him run the light.

Good times. But thank goodness that we are okay.

Oh my gosh, I am so glad that you are all okay...if that was me with my 2 little ones in the car, the driver who ran the red light would be very sorry when I was done with him....

OMG........ I'm sure you were freaked out and I am so VERY glad you guys are okay. No emotional scars for LP either - off to the sheep!

What a jerk. I'm glad he admitted fault so the insurance process should be a little less painful for you.

OMGoodness! I am so happy that you are all okay! It is very frightening! People just don't think about the consequences of their actions! Jack-ass!

I would be so upset and really ticked off as well. I am very glad everyone is ok. that makes my heart pound to think of what could have happened.

Yikes - glad you are all OK (including your car but I know it's been a long time since that's been your "baby.") I hope dealing with the insurance company doesn't become your new part-time job.
Can you somehow use your thumb injury to justify more maternity leave?

Good thing you have nerves of steel! And thank you for starting with the title so no one had to screech "What????" like I did when you IM'd me this morning. Oh yeah...next time put that in the IM too.
