We were out doing something with the kids one day, probably when Vivian was a baby. Amanda was going to give me a picture of her kids so she pulled a pair of scissors out of the vehicle's console and snipped off a couple of pictures. That's when she dropped this truth on me:
"Put a pair of scissors in your car and never EVER take them out."
That advice is gold, my friends.
I have a pair of car scissors, and they've come in handy so many times. Got a new toy that your kid needs RIGHT THIS SECOND? Car scissors. Juice box or some other bag of snacks that won't open? Car scissors. Permission slip you forgot about? Car scissors. Kid threw up all over the place and you had to buy them new clothes and are trying to take off all the tags? Car scissors.
