Too funny. And so true. Especially the parts about the sedatives and the vital signs monitor. Too many times I've been at a stop light, presenting the car to my left a lovely view of my rear end as I leaned over the seat to check if my sweet baby was still breathing. : )

I'm waiting for the self-buckling seat belt. My oldest can now do her own, but I'm somehow somedays tired of doing the other two. I like all your other ideas!

LOL! Awesome. Oh, and toddler... *sigh* the word scares the crap out of me...

Our 5 year old can buckle herself in and has for a while. The problem is how long it takes her. She gets distracted about a large number of things between getting into her seat and buckling. Of course, if we offer to help she gets quite offended.

I would definitely want the feature that picks up items dropped by the child.

I would like to add some device that SHOVES my child quickly into the vehicle. She's at the age where she wants to do everything herself, but my God, she's such a dawdler. It seems to take hours for her to dive head first into the floorboard of the backseat, and then, with arms and legs flailing all around, usually losing at least one shoe in the process, she manages finally to hoist herself up into the car seat.

You know how they have remote controls to unlock the car? I want a remote control that magically transports her from outside the car to inside, all buckled and settled in.

    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
