Nah, don't be scared! Taking kids places even as infants teaches them! I have 4 kids 7 and under - trust me, I think I'd need to look up the word "vacation" in the dictionary to know what it meant! It doesn't have to be big trips - I have a bulletin board I hang at "kid level" in our "all purpose room" (dining room, art room, homework room, etc.) and whenever we go somewhere - museum, zoo, state park, etc. we pin up the brochures and pamphlets we pick up while we're there, and they stay there until our next outing.

Put baby memoribila there - pictures, little footprints and handprints, little socks, hospital bracelets, cards from family and friends, etc. Of course, being new parents, maybe just put a pillow on top of it and take a nap ...  Grin

When I had just one, I thought that same thought - "how can I ever have more than one - some days I can't even get a shower!" But it gets easier ...

Back on topic - I have a "door" desk myself - my husband is a carpenter, so he brought home an old luan door, and I sanded it and stained it, and we painted and put on the legs from an old, tiny desk we had - I love it! It's huge and durable - and best of all - almost free!

My favotire thing about my door desk... the hole where the door knob was: thread all the computer coards down there it really helps to keep them neat. Grin
 I HATE tangled cords behind my desk, to many beads get caught in them!!

I wish I had thought of that - we filled the hole before I stained it!

ooooo! i LOVE that table! i was just looking at legs  at the hardware store this weekend and trying to figure out what to put them on. (hardware stores are so hard for me - i want EVERYthing i see.) but too bad i hadn't seen this! i have a bunch of old doors lying around. of course, i'm kinda odd, so i was looking at buying 4 different legs (all the same height of course! i'm not THAT weird! LOL) but i think that might look cool.

Does anyone know a good online supplier of table legs? Screw on or bolt on? We don't have an Ikea around and they don't sell the legs on-line. The Home Depot near me stopped carrying them too!
