So, how was YOUR day?

Several months ago Heidi grew out of the high chair.  She still fit inside, but she grew enough so that she could escape.  The high chair is now in the closet.  

Tonight she grew out of the booster seat.  She grew so much that she discovered it was super fun to rock back and forth while simultaneously cheating death and making her mother freak out.  The booster is now in the closet.  

I decided to let her try dinner in the regular chair.  She kept getting up and running around.  (Was this, perhaps, due to the sugar cookies we made this afternoon?) Finally I had HAD it.  

Tonight I tied Heidi to the chair during dinner.   
With yarn.  
Because that's what I had in the kitchen already.  
At least she is still smiling.

Yarn... Brilliant! I am getting some for both kids. I am just amazed Heidi seemed so happy locked in the big chair!

That is Great! It is amazing what you will do to keep them down eh?

Love it! Hopefully the novelty won't wear off TOO soon with the yarn. You might want to have Plan C (or are you on plan D by now ...) ready to go!!

You make me laugh and you are very creative!

What a great idea. I love that you are always so creative and your kids are happy through the process.
