Here is Michael's solution along with a list of pros and cons.
They're free (if you steal one)
They fit any car seat
We can keep it outside
The bums can use it when we're not using it
It serves a dual purpose if we are broke and need to collect cans and bottles to pay for child care
no cup holder
It's definitely something to think about.

Again, I can't afford this but it sure is nice. Remember the other one I posed a while ago. If anyone knows where to get something like this for less than $500 I'd love to know about it.

Michael did a great job recovering our reproduction Eames chair (ours is on the right). We went to The Fabric Place a few weeks ago to get new fabric for our headboard and this chair. If you ever need fabric and are in the Boston area the Framingham location is the best.

Saw this little guy in the Metro this morning. Brings back the days when they used to have funny animal stories. I miss those. Also in today's Metro, Kitty Wigs (I knew it would catch on).

OK, there are some people who are going to be able to relate to this and some who are going to think I'm totally insane. I can't say how many times I've opening a dishwasher and had the dishes still be dirty because they weren't loaded properly (large dishes blocking the water from smaller dishes etc). Now, thanks to Martha Stewart's "Dishwasher Strategy", we can all know the RIGHT way to load a dishwasher. (No offense Michael, you're wonderful and this is not aimed at you, I think I get this from my father).For instance, Martha recommends "staggering large plates with small ones, and put large cookware and pots and pans along the sides" and if "using a model with a basket, you should alternate your silverware pieces, one piece pointing up, the next down, etc." I don't know about you, but I feel a lot better now. Oh, and it looks like dishwasher in the photo I have posted here, is loaded completely WRONG. Shame on you! Read the "Dishwasher Strategy".
