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?!

Ever Wonder?
We flew to Ohio to visit my parents last week. The kids had a blast at Mammy and Papa's house and the trip went by way too fast, as usual. I know it's crazy, but as soon as our adventure began, I couldn't help but think of Lifetime. When we went through the airport security checkpoint, I counted seven Lifetime tables just at the one gate I was using! You know the table you put your carry-on luggage and shoes on before you push them through the conveyor belt? Yep, a majority of the time, those are Lifetime tables! Considering all of the hundreds of thousands of things that get dropped and scooted on the tables each day, they were in pretty good shape. It definitely speaks well to the strength and durability of Lifetime tables. (I did notice, however, they've started bringing in a few metal tables with built-in storage shelves ...
