Like so many other milestones, I knew this day would come. I was (somewhat) prepared for it in that I own Fisher Price Spacesaver High Chairs (no, this is not an ad nor will I receive any compensation for this blog entry - I just think they're cool). They attach to your dining room chair and also serve as a booster seat without the tray.
After nap, I give the boys juice and a snack. So, like nearly every day, I made their juice cups up and gave them to them first - because they are always "sir-see" when they wake up. I decided on a cheese-and-crackers snack for them, and as I was slicing the cheese, they each pulled out a dining room chair, climbed up, and sat there with their juice cups, like they were waiting for a snack!
This may sound quite mundane and boring, but I assure you, I did not teach them how to do this, ask them to do this, or expect it in any way, shape, or form! I was going to lift each kid into his high chair when I got the snacks on their plates and feed them off their trays like I do every day.
So this was their snack time yesterday:
We officially have Big Boy Seats at the table.
And I like it. :)
