The baby is going to need quite a few things after it’s born. So we thought it was time to go check out some babythings at the store. We weren’t planning on buying anything yet, we were just going to see what was out there…
Of course, that didn’t happen.
One thing you have to know about my husband, orange is his absolute favorite color. I think it all started when he found out it was my national color. He loves this Dutchie and he loves Dutch orange. Did you see his pants and shoes?
Not only was this push chair orange it also stood out in the line of boring, overwhelmingly black buggies and prams, with its bold pattern and bright color. He loved it and I loved it! The quality was great, the look was great, it was a ‘Which Best Buy Choice’, and it was a Cosatto, which happened to be the only brand I had previously shown interest in after seeing other parents with their colorful prams.
After researching 3 in 1 travel systems for babies online, I had expected to have to spend at least £500-£600 on it. So when we found out this system was on sale for £340 (with the option to return for a full refund), we could not believe our luck and quickly jumped on it. Yet when we got to cash register, we got even luckier. Some error in the computer let us have the car seat for free, so we ended up paying only £230.
Only problem was that we had not planned on buying anything. So we came to the store, in a different town, in a 3-door Mini with four people. There was basically no trunk space and there were two very large boxes needing to come home with us. With the help of a store clerk and a lot of pushing, shoving, and squishing we got everything and everyone in. We made it home to Buxton, uncomfortably but safely.
