Anyone wanna see my pretty new carseats?

They are so awesome, don't you think? [I picked them up from someone on freecycle, I think she thought I was actually going to use them. I didn't tell her differently, in case she didn't let me take them.

The Cosco has a date sticker on it that says 1996, the FP says 1989. ]

I don't have one, I was going to use a sledgehammer.

I almost didn't want to put DS in them, but I figured he's washable. Click here to enlarge

It said "older carseats, probably around 10 years old" I wasn't expecting this old of seats to tell you the truth. One good thing though, the woman was pregnant, so at least she wasn't planning on using them for the new baby.

Too bad for her that she didn't trade them in at one of those really big baby stores in order to get a big fat coupon for 20% off any car seat, travel system or crib (among other baby gear stuff).
That store is destroying the old equipment just to make sure that no one else can (or will) use it.
That store is giving a 20% off coupon for every piece of baby gear, no matter how old or what condition it's in.

I could do something like that. The girls go back to school on Tuesday, I'll need something to do besides getting pissed off at the boxes that still aren't unpacked. Click here to enlarge
