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.
Because that's what I had in the kitchen already.
At least she is still smiling.
