A few weeks ago the kids found a new hiding spot that they love to play in - they call it their car. Both of them climb in and know exactly where the button is to turn it on, as well as where the horn is. Sara even dangles her arm over the side and says "arm hangin out." They asked me to join them but when I told them I was too big, they said "mama back seat" and pointed to the floor behind them. That's how it is - demoted to back seat already!
Before you freak out and wonder if their hands will get pinched, the lid is a soft close and won't slam down. Purposeful planning when we bought the furniture years ago.
