Who Knew A Car Seat Could be the COOLEST Thing Ever?!

What with all this growing up someone is doing around here, I thought perhaps the time had come to graduate from the car seat to the "Big Kid" booster seat. It was met with resounding approval from one particular newly christened five year old.

Off we went to Target (and Michael's and Barnes and Noble--but you ought to know by now, I can't have one without the other!) where we found the coolest big girl seat ever! It's super cushy and has a place to put a drink and the armrests move up and down! But that's not the best part...it has reading lights so she can read on those trips we take at night where there's nothing else to do or see!!!

I want some for my car seat!!! There is nothing more boring than riding in a car at night and reading lights would go a long way in saving my sanity (and/or my husband's).

So now, every time we get in the car I hear: "Mommy, I love my super-duper seat!"

That right there makes life worth living, I tell ya.

Omigosh, have you been channeling Junie B? If not, you've got the lingo down anyway.

Junie B. Jones is 5 years old in her earlier set of books, so this may be a good time to get Shanna started on them. Not that I approve of the books - they're some of my least favorite - but the kids think they're rip-roarin' fun. And with your "super dupers" and !!!s and "super cushy" and stuff, I think your girl may agree.

Oh we have the super duper version car seat, too! A sanity saver for sure...now where's mine!

So, do all Targets have a Micheal's and a Barnes and Noble near by? Is this planned?

I am thinking that it is about time for Jack Jack to have a new seat. But, he still doesn't weigh 30 pounds, so he is stuck with the one he has had for a while longer.

You went to Target without me? *sniff sniff

I want one! I bet they'll have super duper ones with a built in massager by the time my girl is 5!
