That sounds like an awesome Idea Nomie! So good to be able to have that kind of cooperation and flexibility!
LRA, no, older seats would be fine if they havent been in an accident, but they would be weight based, and you would just need to go by that. It will be either 9kgs or 12kgs RF. They can still be used
I do believe theres a reccomendation (not sure if its law, i dont *think* so) that seats older than 10yrs shouldnt be used for safety reasons. But if its only a few years old then it wouldnt be an issue! The seat we currently have for DS in my DFs car is a 2008/09 one, not 100% sure. We had it for his other children (my step children) but it was only used a few times!
Disney, I find its brought us together and pushed us apart at the same time, in different areas of our R/ship. Snuggle time wit DF is sometimes interupted by a crying DS who then sleeps in our bed from when he wakes (anytime from midnight-4am usually) until he gets up around 8.
I find we do try and spend time together as a family, even if its just a morning doing errands and shopping, or an arvo at the beach or park.
I LOVE being a mum, and love my DS to bits, but i get really annoyed when DF takes off to visit mates and leaves me at home alone with bub ALL the time for hours on end. Its great he has a social life, but he has NEVER once looked after bub on his own. Although i am very picky with who DS stays with. He has only EVER been left with my mum.
So it has its ups n downs.....for me anyway.
