So, buying a car seat is really about picking the best of the worst, right.
When I was younger, Powerwheels was the toy that I wanted. Every Christmas I would wish for one, and every Christmas I was disappointed. I vowed that my children would have one. Twenty years later, the price shot up to 300+ dollars and I have 3 kids. Do the math.

4:15: saw weatherman on television.
4:20: walked outside. Seems okay.
4:25: called wife and told her not to drive home. (did not listen).
4:30: thought, “maybe I should get the girls from daycare.” Walk outside. Not so good anymore.

4:34: pick girls up. More like, “get your asses in the car,”
4:36: almost make it to two streets when the traffic stops and the wind picks up 25 ft in front of the car. Can’t see past the wall of wind. Crap self.
4:38: hail on the car. middle of street u-turn. Not so funny anymore girls, is it?
4:40: reach daycare. Spending time with children. Check underwear; we’re good.

For the first year or so of My Daughter’s life, we had her convinced that rice cakes were cookies. Thanks to Our Daycare Provider and her grandmother (both of whom can bake way too well), we had no such luck with #2. But Oedipus –now he is convinced.
Look at him, he thinks he is getting away with murder.
*My eldest, thinking she is big shit after beating Super Mario Brothers Wii…
Me: Let’s see how great you are with the original Mario Brothers…
You have to go one at a time?
Wait, 3 lives and you start over?
I have to do all of that again?
Wait, you can’t go backwards?
What are the other powers (there are none)?
There is no ice power?
You can’t fly?
Why is he so blocky?
How’d you get in that secret area?
How do you know all this?
