Solid Food!

Friday, April 27th, 2007

Evan had his second "solid" food meal of smooshed bananas last night, his first being on Wednesday. I forgot how babies will try to suck on the spoon instead of eating from it like we do. It is awesome and I have 15 minutes of video from his first time. I will spare you the boredom of the 15 minutes, but I will try to post video some time next week.

Posh Tots

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I have no idea how we got on this catalog's mailing list, but we are so keeping it around for comic relief. Posh Tots offers insanely expensive stuff for your little one. And if you register your email on their website, you can win a $2500 shopping spree. Which, from what I have seen, will not actually buy anything in their catalog. Allow me to highlight some of my favorite items:
Red Beard's Revenge Pirate Ship Playhouse: $52,000. Look, I get it, pirate stuff is in. But $52 grand in? This ship costs more than the real sailboat I would want to cruise around the Caribbean in retirement.
Sophie's Magical Windmill Playhouse: $38,000. It's a playhouse, not an actual house. You shouldn't have to take out a mortgage to buy it.
Sky King Tricycle in Red: $249. I love the sock monkey riding it in the picture, but sock monkey better get a second job. This is a replica of a 1936 trike, which I guarantee did not cost anywhere near $250. You can also get your kid his own mini Beemer or Mercedes for $7500-9000.
Fairy Tale Princess room: $3600 plus. The bed starts at $3600, and that doesn't include the $1000 sheets.
Fantasy Coach bed: $47,000. Why settle for the cheap Fairy Tale Princess room when your princess can sleep in her own coach for just $47 grand?
I could go on and on, but it's better just to let you browse around their site and gape at the price tags.
