We’re eating as a family of six now, which has been an overwhelmingly pleasant transition. Since I attempt to feed the boys what we are eating for dinner and eat at the same time they do, it made sense for us all to be around ONE table. It’s been a blessing to pray together before our meal; holding their sweet little hands and listening to them say "amen" at the end.
We are using the Fisher-Price booster seats that we had already used a few times for traveling. Thanks to the Goerlich’s for reminding us that the "booster" part of the seat makes it table height and thus allowing us to save some dough from purchasing our alternative option, restaurant style high chairs.
Being all plastic makes for
easy easier clean-up! A+, Fisher-Price!
We ordered two more chairs from our local Woodcraft Furniture, which is where we purchased the other 4 in 2003. Good news – they still make the exact same style of chair! They sell affordable, solid, all-wood, pieces of furniture. We order unassembled and unstained to save on the cost. Until they are shipped, we’re using folding chairs. (By the way, I’m crouching, not sitting in this picture. I’m short, just not THAT short!)
The table was a scratch and dent (with MINIMAL scratches or dents) bargain from Ashley Furniture. We figured scratch and dent was the way to go for our family, since there’s a high probability for both in a family of 4 boys!
Thanks for all of your sweet, tender, comments on my feeding table post. I’m glad I wasn’t alone in my nostalgic thoughts. Can’t believe y’all were tearing up with me! I think the "next step" is going to be a great fit for our family!
