The high chair's ouda-here!

We've done it... we got rid (ok, so it's under the house waiting for Sweet Pea) of the high chair! That's right. I really do not care for that high chair. It's clunky and hard to move around... well, one handed anyway. I am thankful for it, as a wonderful friend found it for us at a garage sale... but it's just not what I would pick if I had unlimited funds so I'm excited not to need it for a while.

So what do we do with our 20 month old??? We decided to try him out in a chair. Sort of. We don't have a booster seat, and regular chairs are too low. In the mean time, between now and whatever we decide to do long term, we are using a step stool. It has 2 steps on it, and though it still isn't as high as we would like for Tornado, it does get him higher. He loves it and he is learning to stay at the table until we say it's ok to get down... without being restrained by straps or a tray.

At our house, the kids barely get past 12-18 months before the highchair has to go. They really like sitting at the table better anyway and once they learn the routine and the rules, they stay at the table until the meal is over and they are excused. Hope it works for you. :-)

What we did for a booster seat is use an old phone book. The phone books around here are a good two inches deep. My dh did what all good dh's do well, covered it with duct tape. That way it doesn't slide around at all.

Just wanted to say hi! I haven't been around much anywhere lately. things are crazy here too. benn missing seeing you!

The twins are 28 months now. High chairs until age 2. Then booster seats lasted for 1 month...maybe.

They do fine in regular chairs.

Many blessings!!!!
