One of the things I never really paid attention to before, but was concerned a great deal after becoming a mom, is our car.
Are the tries worn out? How often does it need an oil change? Is the fuel tank full? What are car lifts for? Are there tools and a spare tire in the back? What's covered in the insurance and when is it due? Are the brakes working properly? Does it use up much gas?
Are there so much junk in the car that can become dangerous projectiles in case of car crashes?
And eventhough we didn't use car seats (because there aren't laws about it here in the Philippines), I even read up on rear-facing ones and its advantages.
You just can't help but be more critical and concerned when you become a parent.
