Things you learn

The most important thing I learnt today: Make dead certain that you're in park BEFORE exiting the vehicle. I got out to dump a bag of trash and imagine my surprise to see the suburban rolling back. My heart was racing as I immediately turned around and reached for the gear shifter thingy (technical term :)) Once I got it in park it stopped and rocked a little. phew, could you imagine the look on DH's face if I had to call and tell him that we were out yet another vehicle.

This happened to my mom with two toddlers in her van! She was terrified they'd roll down the hill, but instead they just crashed into a mail box. No one was hurt, but it's still a scary story we tell.
