Keep them in the seat as long as you can, we certainly did it longer than most around here. 6 and 60 used to be the law but now it's 8 and 80! However the state also factors in height and provides some good tools to help you determine at what point switching makes sense.

Our 2 younger ones JUST hit 60 pounds and they are 10.5 and 9.5 so we really had to look at height, where the belt hits them, etc and it is different by car so we had different seat rules for the different cars.

I am so sorry you had to deal with impatient people, I can only imagine how difficult it must be. I really hope it got better! It is hard. Eric has a classmate with severe allergies and my nephew just went gluten free, it is so much work to be on top of the labels.

Heck I just found out my cat is allergic to wheat and that's a pain.
I think DS is tall enough for the booster seat but everything says it's safer to keep him in the seat longer. So that's what I shall do!

It really is a lot of work to have to remember to read every single label. I mean, you even have to read seasoning labels. Until it happened to us, I never would have thought of that.
You made me laugh out loud about the cat.

seasonings, I wouldn't have thought of it either!

Oh the cat thing is a mini nightmare and I feel horrible that we didn't catch it earlier. He's a picky eater, has been on the same food forever. About a week ago I noticed he was losing fur. A couple of other things had been happening so I decided to take him in.

He's been chewing it off! He hadn't lost weight like we thought, just enough fur chewed off to make him look a lot smaller than he is. Apparently either due to some skin irritation, most likely an allergy or it's psychological (which we don't think it is). Vet thought it was definitely an allergy of some sort. Vet asked about diet changes right away and I'm like, no, none.

Got home realized they'd changed the packaging on his food 2 months ago. Sure enough, "new" formula has wheat and soy, old one did not.

If your DS still fits in the seat then go for it, we did as long as we could. We had one of the boosters that had a back on it and had the back on for a long time before we went to just the booster.

So I've been boning up on cat food all week and testing grain free options.

Congrats on the DVC.

Since you have extra points this year, you should think about a quick weekend trip in October, say the weekend of the 23rd for Ip Dip . It would be wonderful to get to meet you.

( Ip Dip, Ip Dip, I Dip, I am try to subliminally put it in your head )

You are most welcome. I think you made a good choice. I understand the thinking of going after the home resort with the lower maint. fees, but most people recommend buying where you want to stay, and I think it makes sense.

I'm waiting for our package to arrive to get all the technical stuff done but I think we may be going back this summer. We will get to try out our home resort at AKV with a savannah view! Soooo.....who else is going in June????
Addonitis already?

We'll be there June 12 - 20, and would love to meet up with you folks if the timing works out. FauntleroyFan07 (Dan) will be there starting a few days before that and then leaving around the 18th, I think. We're going to meet up with him and his wife at the Yehaa Bob Jackson show at POR on the 12th.

Hi! I just subbed- I'm a friend of Rosie's. Wanted to say congratulations on your DVC!!! Isn't it SUCH a great feeling??? I am STILL excited about it and we bought AKV in 2007! Are you going to be at Jambo or Kidani when you go in June? We just had our first Kidani stay this past November, it was WONDERFUL, and we are going to stay Concierge (DH & I) in September (which I have been lucky enough to have done once already, last May, with the DISmoms- that's when I met our friend Rosie). I LOVE those AKV points!!

Oh- and the people behind you in line?

PIGS. Total jerks! I am ashamed of them and i don't even know who they are!
