Giving thanks at the Kiddie Table

The new Lifetime Kiddie Table Sweepstakes has reminded me of some fond memories. My mother came from a family of 8 children, so when her side of the family gets together for holidays many of us cousins were told to sit at the kiddie table... usually a Lifetime adjustable height table. When I was finally big enough to sit at a table where I could swing my legs I was ecstatic to say the least. But as the years passed, I started to look at the kid's table again with a little more fondness. Being one of the only female cousins my age, I had a serious shortage of friends at these occasions. So I decided to start sitting at the kiddie table again. When you are in your teens and you start paying attention to children you get an instant fan base. After this move I became a family celebrity. You may laugh, but it's true. When I was elected student body VP at Weber State University they all asked for autographed campaign posters. Though I doubt they still have them now, the friendships created at the kiddie table will stay with me forever. In fact, I'll see all those cousins in a few weeks for Thanksgiving. They have graduated from the kiddie table now. Most of them have their own cell phones and boyfriends and are dressing much cooler than me. But every now and then I see a few of them return to the kiddie table for a visit... and that makes me smile. Do you have memories of the kiddie table? Please share!

Fresh Efforts To Go Green!
