Adventures in OxiClean.

Thanks to the worn suction ring on her bowl, Laurel made her lunch portable today. She spooned about a quarter-cup of Spaghetti-Os onto the carpet before I could remove the bowl from her (I was shelving books and couldn't see her directly).

Unable to find any carpet cleaner, I found a bucket of OxiClean stashed with Himself's cleaning junk. Less than five minutes after I applied it (1/8 scoop in 2 cups water) to the carpet, the stain was gone. I'll have to explain the damp spot on the carpet if it's not dry before Himself gets home, but I'm ecstatic to have avoided a carpet stain.

On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know where to get a booster seat for dining at home? I've asked at restaurants with nice booster seats and gotten blank stares in response, but Laurel refuses to use a highchair and doesn't like sitting on my lap. Eee.

Fisher Price makes this one:

which is available on Ebay at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2055403221 for only three dollars, but it ends in 30 minutes!

Look on there, though, there are a few different kinds of booster seats - I like this one the best.

Wal-Mart, Target, K-Mart, Toys R Us all have decent booster seats as well. I was lucky and managed to get a high chair that converts to a booster seat as well as a table and chair. :o) But E-bay and Yahoo auctions are good places to look as well.

OxiClean ...
thats wonderful stuff isn't it??? I love mine. haha, 23yrs. old and I'm excited about cleaning products...hhmmm. oh well.
I bought Lane a booster seat from wal-mart. tis wooooonderful. has a tray if you don't want them directly at the table but the arms of it are still low enough to fit under the table. :) I can't remember the maker, but its red yellow and blue, and can collapse for easy take along. I think it was like $15 or less.
