    New seat in Daddy's car.

    We got a great deal so DH got his Recaro. He's really happy that you can see Recaro through the little side window. DD1 will be 5 in June, I was going to make her wait until August but she's been great on her few trial rides so we're test driving the booster.


    I also broke down and took out the RF since every time DH went to lunch with someone at work the seat got pushed back into it so DD2 gets to ride FF in daddy's car. She's super happy about the cup holders.


    We drove all the way next door to pick up sunglasses and show off the Recaro. silly boy.

    They look great! Your DD's are super cute, too I love the look of the ProBooster, and it sounds like your DH is over the moon about it!

    Thanks, I think they are cute too. We've done a few short rides in the booster. Drive 4 miles to the store to get chocolate sit a picnic table and consume chocolate and drive home. It usually puts the kids in a great mood.

    DH's eyes got huge the first time I mentioned getting him a Recaro and he assumed it would cost too much. Then I found one for not much more than a Turbobooster, be refused to talk me out of it. It works great in his car and is pretty easy to buckle. He's also happy it showed up in the wrong color.

    Now he wants them to match but that Maestro is staying in because I'm using latch in his car until they are both in boosters. It may be a very long time because Emma isn't showing a hint of impulse control yet.

    Is that the ultra-plush Midnight fabric? If so, I'm jealous. Recaro had the BEST plush fabrics back in the day. I think the only one they still make is Midnight.

    Yep it's midnight. The kids couldn't keep their hands off it in the box, I had to hide it. The soft makes up for it not being a nauseating pink and for the lack of cup holders.
