Your mother in law must be incredibly petite rotfl
My 4 year old twins love it back there. BUT, there is no leg room. They sit cross legged back there and say Daddy go faster and are my cop spotters. Also, it is so short that they don't even need the booster seats anymore to have thier head in the right position on the rear headrests. When they are 12 they may start complaining, but for now, they are fine.I'm 6 foot 1 inch tall so sit back quite far, would I need to amputate my daughter's legs below the knee to fit her in the seat behind me? -eek-
The first time I read that line I saw "the you can hit her better." This would be the worst car to be in as a kid, there would be no chance of escaping the swat! I must be thinking back to my own childhood and my mom's elastic arms capable of reaching from the driver's seat to the 3rd row of the station wagon when needed. :thwack:But, why not keep your daughter behind the passenger seat. Then you can see her better?
