    It's a sad day for car seats here :(

    My OS Parkway was manufactured 09/07/05. It has to be retired and join the stack of seats "to be recycled" I love that seat! My 9yo still fits in it (although my van's roof is not tall enough so he cannot use it). It has been my dd's seat in dh's car but now she will sit in a pretty pink/zebra striped Harmony backless (she's almost 7, 43 pounds now). The kids don't ride with dh very often and it just seemed silly to buy another HB for less than once a month.
    RIP my dear PW

    I know the feeling! I had to retire my very 1st MA @ a year ago. My PW and regent will have to be laid to rest soon too! I LOVE the regent and will be very sad DS will probably never get to use it.

    I know the feeling! Our 2nd RA40 will expire in May. I will be sad. DH will be sad, that's his favorite seat.

    So, um, would it be too soon to inquire about the cover?
