I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces. And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 9 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
So, admittedly, I'm terribly lazy. I leave stuff in my car all the time. And one of those was my water bottle. It was empty. I didn't need it. Why not, right?
This is why...
The bottle on the left is a brand new one (that I needed to get after "the bottle accident of 2012"). The bottle on the right is the one I left in my car overnight, maybe 12 hours. These are identical bottles. Bottles I would have previously thought as rather sturdy.
If this can happen to a simple, I'll still even say, sturdy bottle, imagine what could happen to your pets or kids!? Never, ever leave ANYTHING in a car, even with the windows cracked or open!
