I used to think that exersaucers were too big, too bright, and too obnoxious. I definitely didn't want one in my house. That, my friends, was kidless Katie talking. Now that I'm walking this baby path again, I say, "Bring on the exersaucer!" Does it take up a lot of room in my little house?...yes. Is it flourescent orange?...sure is. Are there all sorts of wacky gadgets and gizmos on the tray?...you bet. But does it keep Charlie entertained while I'm cooking dinner...why yes it does! And that folks, is all that really matters.
