Just My Size!

Kids have a way of doing things that just make you smile.  It's always surprising and amusing how even the tiniest of tots can be pretty resourceful.  Take, for instance, my daughter's witty idea a few weeks ago when we visited my family in Ohio.  While we were up at their lake house, we ate almost every meal outside to enjoy the lake view and the beautiful weather.  Plus, with six adults and five kids, we simply had more table space outside than inside. 

Typically, the adults would always sit at my parents' patio table and chairs while the kids would eat at the 6' Lifetime picnic table.  Even though it wasn't a children's Lifetime picnic table, all of the kiddos could reach just fine, except for my two-year-old daughter, Alyssa.  She loves being like the big kids though so don't think for a second that size would stop her! 

Nope, usually Alyssa just sat on her knees and could reach the tabletop without much problem.  One meal, though, she got pretty wiggly and silly and actually fell off.  (Thank goodness she wasn't hurt.) So, the next meal, instead of trying to sit still like we asked, she came up with her own plan!  She simply pulled her little toddler outdoor chair up to the bench of the picnic table and used the bench as her tabletop.  It was the perfect height for her!  And, who knew a plate was the perfect size to sit on a picnic table bench?  Alyssa was finally able to sit on her bottom and was still able to eat at the picnic table with the big kids!  Now, why didn't I think of that?!

Ten Upcoming Reasons to Buy A Lifetime Table Now
Ok, so maybe this title has a slight arrogant flare. But, just hear me out. I honestly have your best interest in mind and Im only trying to help you get the most bang for your buck. The idea for this post popped into my head after talking to my neighbor who just bought a Lifetime table. Shed been wanting to buy a Lifetime table for a while, but just never got around to it. (Sound familiar?) Her friend was having a 40th birthday party and asked if our neighbor had a folding table she could borrow for the party. Since my neighbor had been wanting to get one for her monthly Girl Scouts meetings and her upcoming garage sale, she went out that day and bought a 6 fold-in-half Lifetime table and then immediately loaned it to her friend for the birthday party. Being able to clearly see how should would use the table for multiple f...
