Nov 26, 2011 Chauffeur Now that I’m a dad I have become a professional chauffeur. When all three of us get into the car, I sit in the driver’s seat, and my wife and baby jump into the back. My wife says she sits next to him to make sure he’s doing ok. She needs to soothe him. I think she just wants more quality time with her son, and trying to make sure his first words are “mummy”. I’m jealous. Also, she says she sits next to him because the baby seat is rear facing, and therefore she cannot see him from the passenger side. I really don’t know what she is talking about because I installed one of those mirrors that allows both of us to see him from the front. I guess using these mirrors are not the same as sitting next to our son. So, now I am all alone in the front. I guess I have to take one for the team. At least I get to be in charge of the tunes!
