lol, karin! i really am! i got lucky with the cart cover though. i just happened to buy it for $20 at bj's (wholesale club like sam's), later i saw it on amazon for $35.
i definitely think these cart/highchair covers are a must have. finn would have his mouth all over the cart handle if we didn't have this and, depending on what restaurant we're at, sometimes the highchairs are all sticky.
I know, they are pricey, but I love them. Ava has the rainbow floral one. Well, she doesn't have it yet. Now I just have to return the ones I bought from walmart. I don't like the cart cover from wm b/c it doesn't cover the sides. The high chair cover sucks too. Most restaurants we go to have regular high chairs. I hate that b/c they're sooooo sticky!
Ugh, I hate restaurant high chairs. They really bother me....they seem like germ mangents, no matter how nice the restaurant is. Adriana doesn't chew on those, or carts but they still creep me out.
So those sound like they really are a must have.
