Britax Regent

So I went shopping Friday morning with my mom. We went to our local baby store to check out the restraint systems carseats for Angry Toddler. My mom kept asking when he could he fit into a booster like our friend's daughter. Umm, this kid is going to be in a 5-point booster seat as long as he fits in one.

I see all kinds of car accidents daily at work. I'm a total car seat freak. Everyone at work sees the same car accidents, yet they put their kids in crappy seats. I just don't get it.

We ended up getting the Britax Regent. It's a great seat and goes to 80 lbs. Angry Husband helped me install it in the Tahoe. We centered it in the rear bench seat. It's alot better than my previous seat, a Britax Marathon.

I left my Tahoe with Angry Husband last night so that he could put AT in the new seat and try it out. AH said that AT did not like the seat and he wanted his old one back. Well gee, I wonder why? Angry Toddler was pissed because he couldn't figure out how to get out of his carseat. I thought that it was very funny.

I took Angry Toddler for a haircut earlier this morning. He sat in the seat fine. I even asked him if he liked the seat. He said he liked the seat and that it was just like Stella's. Stella is the daughter of my BFF, Stacey.

Oh and the haircut, he asked for it to be short in the back and spikey on the top. He looks like he came straight out of the US Marine Corps Bootcamp. Actually, he kinda reminded me of Angry Husband when I met him. Angry Grandma, my mom, flipped when she saw his hair. She thinks that we should grow it out. Umm, nooo, he has major cowlicks in the back.


  1. I am a carseat freak too! We have a Marathon and Roundabout but as soon as Tess is out of the Roundabout, we are moving her up to the Marathon and Bram is getting a Regent. They are huge and look like little lazy boys in the back seat.
    My kids will be in a 5 point harness until they are 80 lbs. I don't get why so many people keep there kids in those cheap boosters.

    You being in law enforcement and being a nut about the carseats totally validates what I have thought all along.

    And Angry Toddler looks super cool with his mini marine haircut.

  2. Aww he looks so cute in his new car seat with his buzzed hair!! Hey have you found any cute custom boy's tops for Christmas? I count on you to find cute boys stuff!!

  3. We have a Regent for Autumn.. she loves it! ST looks way cute in his new seat! I like his haircut too. :)

  4. We have 2 Regents and LOVE them. Our kids will be in them until they outgrow them, I am nutty about car safety. I have seen one too many bad accidents to not be!! Not a risk worth taking to us.

  5. He looks like such a big boy in the new car seat!~

  6. I plan on keeping Big Boy (who will be 3 in a few weeks)in a 5 point harness as long as he is physically able to fit!

  7. Yes, I'm a carseat freak.

    I wish more people would be too.

    Everyone loves Angry Toddler's haircut. Could you please pass that on to my mom, who freaked when she saw it.

    Manisha, I will do a post about our holiday shirts that we've got.

  8. All three of ours are in Regents. The oldest, 7.5, is almost too tall for her seat. Not sure what to do when that happens. She could be in it for another six months, or she could grow three inches next month.


Thank You for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. At least I know that someone in my life actually agrees with me.
