Target has nice microfiber square ottomans for like $20... get yourself 2 and you're good to go! The tops are completely removable so you don't need to worry about smushed fingers. They come in all colors and it's stood the test of time with my 2 year old :)

Storage Ottoman That's Safe for Daughter?

I would put my little in her bouncy seat and peak on her periodically throughout my shower :) I would also use her naptime while she was in her crib as a good time to take a shower (taking the baby monitor with me, of course, but be prepared to jump out of the shower at any moment... that got old quick) and she's nearly 2 now, but can get herself into some trouble ;) so now when I *need* to take a shower when I'm with her during the day, I put her in her crib with some toys and music and tell her mommy's going to be quick. She likes the special play time in her crib. I think I lucked out with this one though. My question is, how do you shower with a 2.5 year old and a newborn??? That's going to be my next dilemma!

How's a New Mom Supposed to Get a Shower?

We own too many books to put bookplates in. I think they're fabulous and when I was pregnant with my daughter I started a vintage little golden books collection for her. I had every intention of putting bookplates in the books but... there are just too many of them. I constantly buy books second hand for our family because it's fun to find them for cheap and you can get so many for your money, and that way I have no problem donating back the books that weren't loved. But there's just too many. Not a bad problem to have though :)

I don't think the pulleys are the dangerous part... I think the idea of having so many cords is kind of scary. Think hanging?

Not being critical, just trying to figure out how the kid reaches the books at the top ;)

How does the kid get the books higher than her? This is pretty but not practical at all... my 16 month old has her books in bins on the floor so she can pull them out and read them all day long and put them back whenever she wants.

We got my daughter a play kitchen when she was 13 months old and it was a hit! She has the pink KidKraft fridge & stove/oven/sink playset. We made sure to give it to her with lots of accessories. She doesn't really understand the concept of cooking food in the oven and washing dishes in the sink and such :) but she sure has a blast pulling stuff out of the baskets in the fridge and throwing things in the sink, etc... you definitely will get a lot of play out of it. The earlier the better, I think!
