Heartbroken

So my Jeep 2013 unlimited Sahara is 2 weeks old today. I love love love this vehicle it screams fun!! My hubby and I took the top off for the first time on Saturday. I was so friggin excited and was having a great time. My kids who are 13, 9 and 4 were cruising around with me and I dropped my two older kids off at a friends. My youngest wanted to stay and I told him no. So he was freaking out in the back and undid his carseat and was trying to climb over the back seat into the trunk. A mothers reaction be it right or wrong is to turn and grab the child. So that's what I did and instead of throwing my ebrake on, which I should have done.... I hit a pole. The jeep is a tank but sustained some damage. The mirror is off the fender is scratched And the door is dented a bit. I went today and got a bunch of quotes to have it fixed. Found a guy to do it for $1200 and now it's in the shop till Friday. I feel sick about the whole thing!!
I know it's just a vehicle and of course my son is more important but wow I'm bummed. I love my Jeep and it sucks that it happened at all. Oh life throws some punches. I hope it comes back Friday looking brand spanking new and perfect again.

Ps with the top off all I could think was that he would fall out and be run over or something! Scary

i'm glad you and your son are okay. that's the important thing here. you might want to look into something (like a three point harness) that's going to keep your son from moving around in the cabin.

welcome to the WF!
