Man, we were so worried that we would have to purchase a new car b/c we have a Honda CRV & honestly, when I went out to measure the back seat, I had my doubts. It measured across w/ just barely enough room but you know how specs are, a little deceiving at times so I was concerned that when I order the Sunshine Radian 65's that they wouldn't fit across. Of course, part of me was excited about the prospects of looking for a bigger vehicle but there were many more parts of me that were dreading finding something that would fit us just right.
The carseats arrived on Monday. I was so stinkin' excited about new carseats that I opened one of them & was very impressed w/ how nice they were. Then, the worry set in. 3 of these? Across the back seat of my CRV? Doubtful.
Today I decided that I would go out & give it a go. The kids were sleeping & I had spare time on my hands. Huh? Did I just say spare time? Uh, yeah...anyway. So, I get the seat & off to the car I go. I put it in w/ a bit of trouble. Who would have thought that the latches needed to go a very specific way? Apparently I didn't but after 3 tries, I got the 1st seat in. Lookin' sharp! The seats match the interior of the car perfectly. Yeah, I'm such a chick.
Then I went to get the middle seat. Should have put that one in first. Duh. Oh well, it fit & that is all that mattered. Now, for some reason, the seatbelt isn't locking the seat in place so I am going to have to get Todd to fix that when he gets home.
Finally, it was time for the challenge. Out came the 3rd seat from its box & plastic covering. In to the car it went AND...
they FRIGGIN' FIT! Oh yeah baby! I'm in the money! Life is FANTABULOUS. No new car, no new car payment. Just my sweet ol' Brown Eyed Betty totin' around 3 1-yr olds. Does life get better than this?
