Car Seats

So, I get these emails from Toys R Us, Wal Mart, Target, Joanns, Michaels, Family Christian Stores, and the list goes on.  They all come at least once a week and have their weekly ad in the email as well as possible coupons.  I received one from Toys R Us advertising a trade in event that if you bring in an old item, you can get a percentage off a new item.  Well, I guess I knew this day would come that we would need a new seat.  I mean, after two other boys, the car seat we have is pretty gross.  And, poor little Emory may be rear facing until he's 2 at the rate he is gainig weight. 

All that is fine, but as I looked in the garage tonight at all our old stuff, I told Claude we needed a new seat and why and I was surprised he would be ok with it.  I just hate spending the money when I know it's going to be our last child.  Then again, he weighs less than 15 pounds and he won't grown into the front facing car seat and booster seat as quickly as the other two did.  So, I'm on the hunt now to find the best seat at the best price.

Tomorrow I have my final post op appointment and hope to have time to look at the car seats at Toys R Us before picking up the boys from preschool.  As far as that garage is concerned, we've got to have some warmer and dryer weather on a day without kids in order to clean it out.  February is consignment sale month around here and I'm already making preparations.  March is going to be our yard sale month.

Sorry if this post has been boring, but could you please do me a favor?  If you have any words of wisdom on car seats, please let me know.  Thanks!

Have a great Tuesday,
