Just when I want to not have any more plastic toys in our world, I go out and buy the world's largest inflatable plastic sea turtle. I knew we would be playing in a pool here at the hotel, and I thought that John could ride in one of those inflatable baby seats if I were taking the kids to the pool alone. Well, I couldn't get one for him and not for her, so I let her pick one thing. It is big enough for her to nap on. I'm a two faced plastic buyer. I've always had a vision of a huge Mount Trashmore of Fisher Price plastic things discarded after the baby grew up, and now even I am contributing to the brightly colored plastic wasteland.
