I have questions, lots of them. Mostly mom type questions, but not all.
I love having M in the backyard with me while I garden, but I think I need something for her to do. Not that it would stop her from trying to garden, but I can wish, right? I have been looking at climbers and playhouse type things. You know, Little Tikes, Step 2, generally plastic and garish. I figure she isn't quite ready for a metal swing set like this, and I don't have A. the yard or B. the money for one of those monster Rainbow Play Systems. (Every budget my ass and would it kill you to give pricing online, I don't have time to go look)
So? What is good? What sucks? What is appropriate for a super tall two year old. Think two year old skills, but has been caught dwarfing the three year olds at parties. I'm finding woefully little information from bloggers about them. Specifically about the size an age appropriateness of them. However, it seems everyone but me has one, so I'd love some sharing.
Speaking of wanting one, where can I find used? I work full time and can't do the Thursday garage sale thing, I'm not seeing what I want (for a reasonable price) on Craig's List. It could be the all go fast, but I'm not sure.
Speaking of Craig's list. Any experience selling kids stuff on it? What about Once Upon a Child? It has been decided that M will likely be an only child (I'm sure I'll blog about my feelings eventually), and that means I am freed to get rid of a bunch of what we have been holding on to. I'm sort of looking forward to it, but I'm unsure how to do it. I would like to get a little return, perhaps to pay for part of a climber or play house.
