My rearview in hindsight…

In hindsight, maybe letting my kids have free reign of the car while I pulled mildewing sippy cups from under the seats and chiseling granola bars and sucker sticks from the upholstry in a futile attempt to clean my car. My (almost) 5 year old’s response was, “Uh-oh! MOM!” and my (almost) 3 year old’s first response was “I didn’t do it!” Uh-huh. He’s the one in the pictures wearing a shirt that appropriately says “Looks can be deceiving.”

    They also ruined my ability to form a coherent sentence apparently. That first part made no sense hahahaha. I meant to say that it was not a good idea. Anyway, you get the point. 😛

    It’s so nice to know that I am not the only one who makes these futile attempts to clean my car! You did forget about the dried up french fry that landed in the door jam:).

    That mirror looks like it can be popped right back on.
    Maybe it was designed to let go under excessive force, to minimize the chance of breakage.

    That is exactly a $15 dollar fix at ANY repair shop. They just have to shove the one end back into the other.

    If they can’t, then it’s a simple matter of unscrewing the bolt on the windsheild mount and you get a new mirror. They are like $50

    i dont understand why parents let their kids eat/drink in the car. if its a long road trip, let them eat a snack outside when you stop for gas (not criticizing, i just dont understand..its like ASKING for messes)

      Really?? Do you have children??

  • Karen Honeycutt

    My son did that once…only he was hanging on the mirror while his “dad” was “watching” him…….

    Darling, obviously you don’t give him enough of the RIGHT toys.  Please rectify the situation and then post content of worth.  Ta….!

    Would be even worse if that was an electrically dimming mirror.
