Since I'm not exactly "wordless" I decided to change it up a bit.
Did you have a Boppy when you had your baby? You know, those C-shaped pillows that you tucked around you to aid in nursing the baby? They came in pretty handy with all three of my kids. With Baby at the halfway mark between 2 and 3, I haven't needed it for it's intended purpose in quite some time. I've found other uses. When my newborns were required to lay on their tummies, I'd fit the Boppy underneath them so their little faces weren't squashed to the floor. Swaddling them in blankets and tucking them into the curve of the pillow soothed them, also. Then, during the sitting phase, propping the pillow behind them helped them keep their balance...and then provided for a softer spot for them to topple onto.
Surely, the Boppy's usefulness was at an end. That's when I saw a picture of a friend working on her laptop. She had her Boppy on her lap, with her computer perched on top. The pillow protected her legs from the heat (or maybe that's just my computer) and gave her wrists a better angle for typing. So now the Boppy is back in the living room. This means it's also fair game for when the kids get a touch of the sillies.
Boo calls this her Queen Amidala costume. All she needs is white face makeup with red dots on her cheeks.
