Dh has only recently started griping about the number of carseats around the house. It seems to have coincided with my blogging, lol. Up until now, I’ve been fairly frugal with my carseat purchases: we only have 2 kids, so I’ve bought just what we needed, passing down seats as they were outgrown as well. I’ve gotten great advice before purchasing and have liked what I bought, so no need to buy the newest seat on the market. It’s not like they’re technology after all . I mean, I’ve bought a few seats in my time, but I don’t trade them like trading cards (you know who you are!). I know what you’re thinking—she’s a carseat geek and she doesn’t buy carseats?! Well, I’ve lived vicariously through Joolsplus3 .
We were recently getting ready to go on a vacation and dh was trying to be helpful (funny how dhs try to be helpful, but end up being unhelpful) by collecting my ds’s clothes for the trip. He ventured into Never Land, otherwise known as my ds’s walk-in closet. That’s where I keep most of my stash of unused carseats. They’re very tightly packed away in there and covered by clothing, so just a casual glance in there and you won’t see much. I’ve got a Britax Frontier, a Marathon, an expired Roundabout, an expired original Maxi-Cosi Priori in Ziggy the zebra print (sigh, that harness adjuster puts the RA’s adjuster to shame), a Graco AirBooster, and the back portion of a Fisher Price Safe Voyage booster. Until I moved it to the garage in September, the Britax Husky also had a home in there too. And all was right with the world because dh stayed out of there. Then he had to find my stash.
