Happiness Is Your First Bean Bag Chair

Just before Christmas, I came across a steal of a deal on junior sized bean bag chairs and couldn't resist bringing two of them home. One for each of the kids.
As the kids have been growing (and they sure have -- I swear they each grew two inches in the last month!) our living room seating was getting really crowded whenever the family gathered together. Our futon can seat three, if everybody is feeling cozy, and the rocking chair can do two in a pinch (if one of the people is a kid on our lap). I'd hoped that the floor pillows might solve the problem, but not really -- so it was time to try another way to give the kids their own places to sit and relax in the living room.
Happily, the bean bags have been a huge hit. Here's BB nestled in hers along with some of her most favorite friends:
And not that we watch much TV around here, but of course the bean bag chairs are perfect for some tube time. I was highly amused that one of the first things the kids wanted to do after I gave them the chairs was to watch a Peanuts cartoon video. Why? Because, they pointed out, Charlie Brown and his pals all have bean bags, and they sit in them to watch TV!
Nice paying attention to detail, huh? So of course I couldn't resist the synchronicity of a pic of the kids in their bean bag chairs, watching the video of Charlie Brown watching TV in his own bean bag chair.

Ah the simple pleasures of childhood....

i hadn't thought of it either, until the kids pointed it out! They also pointed out that the peanuts characters are often eating in their beanbag chairs and my kids wanted to know why they couldn't do the same :-)
