Got out our old child car seat. I was excited we still had it. Took it apart, washed it up. Cleaned up rather well, only to find that I probably should not use it. A few kind folks enlightened me. Evidently, car seats are only supposed to last a few years. What's that about? Why don't things last anymore?
I was bummed when our 18 year old washing machine died. 18 years! That was a relationship. We went to buy a new one and were told they don't make them to last anymore. Manufacturers actually made the decision to make them cheaper (quality wise NOT money-wise) so you'll have to buy again sooner or buy replacement parts. Wow.
Anyway, guess I will need to be in the market for a new car seat...Not that I mind. I look forward to the days I get to strap my little guy in and see his little feet hang over the edge.
