Playpens, they don’t make them like they used to. We couldn’t find one when we needed one. I know that I grew up in a playpen and my husband seemed to share the same sentiments. So we looked and looked and didn’t find what we thought would hold our children. We did get the baby gate that can sort of be used as a playpen but we never used it except to enclose the Christmas Tree. Did you know that almost every fake Christmas tree has lead in it and the State of California recommends that you wash your hands after touching the trees? We just gate up our tree. We can’t have a real one because one member of the family is allergic and we want her to come visit us.
Take a look at the video above.
Let me know what you think of using a playpen or not. .
My son wouldn’t stay in one but my daughter loved sitting still. So it turned out to be a good thing that I couldn’t find one. Just baby proof the house that’s my opinion. And yet I also feel like the playpen time didn’t last long enough. I mean it would be great to be able to plop them in their pen and get some stuff done or get the living room floor clean. I’ve been in a new house maybe three weeks now and I have not seen the floor since the day we moved in.
I’m going to offer up a 20.00 Gift Card to Amazon to one person randomly that watches the “Life in the Pen” story and tells me what they thing on the subject.
Enter as many times as you want, just be sure to tell me something else about baby playpen time and the video above.
