    Hi Everyone!
    I didn't even think to post an intro thread until I saw another today.. so HELLO!!

    I stumbled upon this site googling for pictures of a ProRide in an Acura to see if it would fit. Anyways, I am SO glad I found this site and I joined a month ago and have just been reading stuff and I'm finally coming out of my shell lol!

    I just posted my Recaro ProRide experience yesterday (in Carseat Chat as well) and didn't mention that it was my first post on here.

    I am a younger, first time new mom.. (well 25.. not really that young lol) so I'm just getting back into baby gear as I used to nanny and take care of younger family members for a few years in my younger days. I have been reading car seat reviews, posts, articles, specs since I found out I was pregnant and I have decided as soon as I can find some time to go to class I want to be a CPST. I see entirely too much improper car seat use and lately its become such a huge interest/passion to me to spread the word, help people and help potentially save children's lives!

    Sorry for the novel... I tend to write a lot. Thank you to everyone who posts on here, this is such an awesome way to get information out there and help others!

    Thank you
