despite our failed Wal~Mart excursion yesterday, I decided to set my sights even higher.
I had one specific item in mind: this $20 highchair.
I love the clean lines and simplicity about their pieces, and while I braced myself for the fact that it could be a disaster, in the end (despite one minor setback*) I'd call it a great success!
we played, we enjoyed lunch together, the girls were on excellent behavior, and I was able to gain inspiration for little projects I'd like to complete around the house.
(hopefully before baby boy makes his entrance)
*I told the girls that if they were all good listeners they could play in the children's area we saw last time. it looked amazing~a huuuuuuge ball pit, tons of things to climb on, an area set up for coloring~and we were all really excited. however, when we finally made it to this area I was told that 1. no parents were allowed and 2. Eenie was not allowed as she is both too short and too un~potty trained. I didn't feel comfortable leaving the older girls and I didn't think it was fair to little bitty midget Eenie, so we passed. Birdie took it the worst, but got over it very quickly.
