the box is always more fun than the product itself

At least according to kids.

img_3211-15The speedy growth of Azariyah required us to get a new carseat.  She's a whopping 21 lbs at almost 6 months of age, so goodbye free infant carseat, hello $99.00 Evenflo convertible carseat.

No one likes to cough up a hundred bucks b/c of something like weight gain, but I must say that I did enjoy picking out a sparkling new seat for the babe.

Before I even began taking the seat out of the box, the kids begged me for the box.  Stephen wants to create a Walmart and Abbie wants to make a hotel for her stuffed animals.  Matt wanted to throw it away.  I pushed for the kids and now they are downstairs creating!  I'll post what they come up with.

  1. Did you know that the cardboard box is officially part of the Toy Hall of Fame (yes they have such a thing!). Right alongside Mr. Potato Head and Barbie is the humble cardboard box - just a useless piece of trivia that you probably didn't need to know:) Another useless piece... the stick was voted into the Toy Hall of Fame this year.
