a remote for everything

Our playard (aka pack 'n play) arrived today. I haven't seen it in person yet because Carl had it shipped to his office. I don't think he trusted me not to carry it into the house and set it up on my own if it arrived here. :)

We picked our playpen based on consumer reports reviews for safety etc. and because it has a diaper changing table. That was my one requirement. I think it will be very useful in the first few weeks home from the hospital and when Baby C goes to stay with g-parents on the days I work.

Having never actually seen our playard we got a little surprise when it arrived. Apparently, it has a remote! Yes a remote! So we don't have to leave the comforts of our coach to turn on the music or the vibration. What a relief! I was really dreading the 10 steps from the coach to the pack 'n play.

And since no post is complete without a picture. Here is our playard:
Now all we need is a remote for the stroller....


  1. I love that you did lots of research before buying the pack 'n play - you guys are too funny.

    Didn't you hear that babies take care of themselves these days? You just throw them in the crib/bouncy seat/swing, then hit the on vibration/music button and walk away. It's like that rotisserie they sell on TV "You set it...and forget it!" :o)

  2. Em-we consultated you and/or consumer reports on almost everything :)
