“Like trying to put ten pounds of sugar in a five pound bag! …

… that’s a saying my mother had for a tight squeeze.

And that’s what I think of when I look at this picture of Jay (17 years old and about 6′ tall) in the third row seat of Hubby’s new SUV.  When we were visiting them in Tulsa recently it was the first time anyone has ridden back there and it’s now obvious that it is a seat best suited for small children.  Jay didn’t mind riding back there for the short trip to and from a restaurant, but I’m sure much longer would have been uncomfortable.

If it isn’t obvious, his head is against the ceiling.

We really like the new SUV, but it’s good to recognize this limitation early on!

    My goodness! 17 years old??!! Where have the years gone? Love the picture. It’s natural to think, “That little seat is for the kids, so Jay can sit there.” But it’s another thing to see what a poor fit it is for your football player/wrestler grandson.

    I so agree with LInda……and what a handsome young man also!!!
    I don’t know where the time is going but it is flying. Our grandchildren seem to be growing up at a faster speed than our children did!!??

    You are so right, Linda. He’s definitely not one of those “little kids” any more. 🙂

    Cheryl — Thank you — he’s a good kid too. Hard to believe he’ll be a senior next year. Life goes quick doesn’t it.
