My Toyota Echo, according to the NZ Consumer magazine, is one of the two "small" cars recommended for safety and reliability.
But I don't think that's supposed to take into account the effect of getting behind the wheel on less than six hours of consecutive sleep; it's apparently akin to driving drunk, if the article in the latest Mother and Baby magazine is to be believed.
I do try to avoid it, but sometimes when Baby refuses to go to sleep in the afternoon, it's easiest just to strap her into her comfy carseat and go for a long drive.
The problem is, the car ride works almost as well on me - the driver - as it does on her.
Here's a solution - hire someone to drive the both of us around the bays, and Baby and I can both get some sleep. Anyone want to volunteer their chauffeur services?
