    Crazy Relatives!!!

    I currently have a five year old daughter in a Blue Bouquet Regent that we just purchased to replace the Husky that will expire in 2008 (well, the truth is we liked the new cover!). We also have a Britax Parkway that we use when she is in other's cars. We also use the booster when either my great aunt or grandmother come to visit as they are TINY (aunt is 4'6" and 70 pounds, g-ma is 4'5" and 75 pounds). I NEVER have both of them at once but they both came today.

    We had to run to the grocery store (daughter at a friend's) and I didn't know what to do but decided one would just have to ride in the Regent. I told them and then heard them start bickering so I thought the idea didn't go over well, but...

    They were fighting because they BOTH wanted to go in the Regent! They were THRILLED when I pulled the Husky out. Both of them eagerly hopped into the seats and buckled up then asked me to tighten the straps. I wish I had thought to get pictures!!!

    I guess that goes to prove "Big Kids" like harnesses, too!
