Over the holidays I happened to mention that I wanted to buy Mikey this rug.
I hadn't seen it until I had finished Christmas shopping for Mikey. And we had already spent enough money. So I figured that I could save up the $45. And buy it sometime before spring. You know, just a fun little pre-baby sibling is coming preset. :)
The minute I mentioned it, Mike wanted to buy it. He liked it. He and Mikey are always playing cars. And my parents and in-laws we're all over it too! Everyone was talking about how we needed to buy Mikey one right now. I thought they were nuts! But no, we headed to Home Depot and Target looking. No luck! And on the website, they were all sold out!
So I was in shock this week! When we got 2 visits from the UPS truck!!
My in-laws sent this cute rug on Monday. On the website it goes for $45. Really cute with all the buildings and roads. Mike and Mikey have been loving it! All week they've been playing on it. So we decided it should go in the den. :)
Then today, we got another package...
My parents sent this one. If I haven't mentioned it before, my dad is a big NASCAR fan. So a racing rug was only natural! For $35.
Um, did you notice how the cute one that I picked out was avoided by the grandparents? :) It cracked me up! So we put the racing rug in the playroom. And Mikey put his race cars on it. The boy knows the difference!
All night, he had Mike running back and forth. They'd play with the trucks and cars on the one in the den. And the race cars in the playroom! I know Mikey just loves these things! I'm glad that our parents got them. But I think they're spoiling our little man too much. Nobody agrees with me. Apparently, that's a grandparent's job!
But these are going to be great now in the cold winter months. That way Mikey has something to entertain himself with. Honestly it doesn't get that cold here. But we could have used these in December when we got all that snow! Thank you grandparents!!!
