I am this close to buying the Step 2 Sand and Water Table. Ever since Andrew saw it at K-mart ($70 earlier this year), he's dreamed of it. Evidently the sand and water station is the hip place to play at preschool. Aldi advertises one for $42 in this week's flyer. He's really too tall for it, but it would be a nice "big brother" surprise for the baby's arrival in June. See? I rationalize purchases just like everyone else. I'm only human.
I guess we'll just add it to the dream yard sale list. Andrew did say he could make one of his own, if only I would buy him some "kid wood" for its construction. It took us three frustrating days to figure out what he meant: that ubiquitous wood-grain plastic resin. Yep, kid wood.
