One of these things is not like the other.

...well they used to be.
When we ordered car seats I thought it was a great idea to get identical seats so that they could switch back and forth between the two. I thought it wouldn't matter which side they sat on and we wouldn't have to worry about which side was who's... Boy was I wrong! There have been way to many tantrums, races to the car and all out fights over who was going to sit where. And you could never predict which side was going to be the "chosen" side of the day. It varied from day to day.
So; as you can see we reverted to iron on patches. P for Pierson and M for Maylin. So far so good! They seem to be proud of their 'own' seats.

The following is just a funny little picture for those of you who are "The Office" fans. While I was ironing on the patches Maylin found herself too close to the freshly ironed patch. It was still hot, but not hot enough to really burn her. However, in Maylin's mind it was a terrible burn. Usually she asks for a band aide but this time she reached for a piece of bubble wrap in the garage... remind you of Michael Scott's foot burn?
Here she is showing off her bubble wrap bandage! While Pierson is sporting a grape juice smile.

You are too clever! Glad that peace has been restored.

You are too "crafty!" What a great solution to the car seat fights. So who sits behind the driver?
And while I don't watch The Office, I still laughed at the bubble wrap band-aid ~ Kylie used some for the same purpose the other day!

I had to chuckle and comment! LOL
We have the same fights. It could be who is to the door first or who opens (used to have a garage) the garage door and we are still on which side of the car and it changes! Kids like routine! That is for darn sure! You are doing wonderful!!
