Talk me down

I am considering buying a new seat after I just sold 3. Clearly I should have kept the Frontier. I have A fairly frequently. She will be 4 in February and is about 35 pounds. Mostly she rides RF in my XTSL. I have also been driving a friend and her little one (H, 20 mos, about 24 pounds) sometimes so I have the CCO RF for her.

But H is now outgrowing the CCO by height. A is RIGHT at the top slots so I can't just put her in that FF when H is with us.

I know logically I should just put H in the XTSL RF and get a FF only seat for A. But I am having a tough time with this! I could just get a cheapo seat for H, but I feel like it would make more sense to spend the money on a seat A can use longer term rather than spend $60 on a seat right now that will put us in this same position in a few months.

Tell me I am crazy for worrying this much about FFing an almost 4 yr old?
