On the way to gymnastics, Isabella (she’s 8) and I are in the car pool lane.
Me: Yes, dear?
Iz: When you are driving with a baby in a car seat in the back seat, are you allowed to use the car pool lane?
Me: Yes, Sweetie. Two people. Doesn’t matter how old they are.
Me: Yes. And, that’s about the only advantage to having a child. You can use the car pool lane.
