the IKEA trap
we spent the day at IKEA. i absolutely love this store, though it does aMAZE me that once you start, you seem to get lost, trapped even, and it's totally against your will, but you don't put up a fight because everthing makes you say "oooooooooh!" or "i need that," so you grab strategically placed, fairly priced needs and wants along the way, and you gradually forget about your unexpected incarceration.
we had plans to get a potty and a plant, and came out with a few more things, but that was to be expected.
the kids enjoyed measuring the furniture and recording their findings with the measuring tapes, mini pencils and paper that the store has in little stations all throughout the store.
