When I was pregnant with Astrid we went so many times to Ikea to buy things we needed for her that it worked like a vaccine on me. If I can avoid going to Ikea I will. But ones in a while I can't avoid it. I go there to by candles, white candles in all sizes and shapes. I try not to buy things I haven't planned to buy, but sometimes I find something to irresistible to resist.
Even if these bowls and plates were not planned, now that I have them they will come to good use. Astrid has begun throwing her plates on the floor if she doesn't like the food. These are plastic, bombastic and unbreakable. I win!
