Sale Bin

This weekend we made the obligatory "just moved to a new house" stop at Ikea. This place makes me crazy when I'm well fed and rested... so I knew we were taking a huge risk going after Elynor's bedtime following a crazy day of visiting friends.

Then enter the Ikea beany baby bin. Don't ask me how we (or Ryan) got the brilliant idea to put Elynor into the bin, but it was a decision that proved genius. I think this is the only time she's ever enjoyed being confined to a limited space. The unending supply of toys made it nice, but I think even nicer was peeking out at all the people walking by and pointing (at her, not her crazy parents).

Maybe Ikea should sell these bins for installation in the home. Really, if I had one of these my house would surely be unpacked!

Okay, that is the cutest thing I have seen in my whole life!! Her grin in the last one just tells it all, she's clearly having the BEST time!

Hopefully, a big box, a few toys and some packing materials at home could be a decent substitute during your unpacking sessions?!
