Breaking The Law Canadian Style
I have been harboring an illegal crib for months it seems. After some vague responses from various employees I was finally told the clear and cut truth about my crib. This crib is not being recalled, however my crib is. My little bit of heaven in our nursery somehow made it through the system and into this country despite canopy cribs being banned by Health Canada. My crib may be the single most rebellious thing I have ever done. I sorta wish I would have known sooner so I could really revel in the naughtiness of it all.
I was laughing hysterically when they told me my crib was the only recall. I mean, come on! Truly this is hilarious. Hilarious with a small side of tears. One recall and it happens to be mine? Ah, if I wasn't so in love with it I would still be on the floor giggling.
I was very nice to both people I spoke to and while I strongly believe in manners, I'm sort of thinking I need to try my luck and see if I can at least get a baby bumper out of the deal. I'm horrible at bargaining or being a disgruntled customer but I may give it a whirl. I'm actually a pretty big wuss at heart, but damn I think they can throw in a little something extra for the headache. I would even settle for the little lamb rug I've been waiting to order. The crib I'm leaning towards will require a new bumper actually so it's not a crazy request. They phone again tomorrow so we'll see! I'm planning to be all "balls to the wall" as the say. Which on me translates to a lot of ahem- if it's not too much trouble- I'm sorry for asking. In the end I'll probably be apologizing to them for ordering the illegal crib in the first place!
My three top choices are above and I'll give you a hint at my favourite ; Neither my mom or Doug particularly love it. Doug is coming around though since we've looked at similiar photos in context of a vintage nursery. Any guesses? Sadly it's likely the one you like the least!
Happy Hump Day!! J xx
