Makeshift Carseat

I just love kids.  Especially my kids.  :-)  They can be so creative in order to do/get what they want.  For instance, the other day, Lillian was determined to get the mail.  She saw the mail man come and Olivia and Landon weren't home to help her up to the mailbox.  So she took it upon herself to figure out a way to get up there.  In fact, she didn't even ask for my help.

I look out at the mail box and she had carried the potty stool all the way out to the mail box, stood on it, got the mail, and then carried everything back.

Get it girl!!

So Olivia has been dying to drive Rhodes around in the jeep.  I've been hesitant.  But I sneaked away the other evening sans kids and came back to this.

She had a made her own car seat for him to sit in.

And get actually worked.  For the most part.

His little bottom fit perfectly behind the lawn mower and it anchored him just enough for him to keep his balance.  And the jump rope was adjustable.  So he could move around and not fall out.

And (no surprise here), he LOVED it.

He even had a chew toy - the wooded end of the jump rope.

So they played and played and he was as happy as can be. 

Kids come up with the craziest ideas sometimes.
