Prior to Brian, Lauren, and Liam coming for the weekend last time, we purchased a new high chair, very reasonably priced at Walmart for under $40. Yes, I could have gotten a better deal at thrift stores, garage sales, craigslist, and such but we were short on time and the nearest ones to us had none. Also, the old high chair we had was wood and hard and Liam did not like sitting in it. We decided it was time for a change.
Well, little dude had been riding in the car for 2 hours, then not long after getting here it was time to sit at the table and eat. He was not happy about it and pitched quite the fit. Then the poor fellow had to get in the carseat once again to go 15 minutes to my sister’s home to celebrate with extended family. By the time we got home several hours later and it was dinner time, he had a melt down where the high chair was concerned.
When the kids come and spend a Saturday night with us, we tend to not go to church the next morning, so that we can enjoy time with them and a leisurely breakfast. Well, we decided that because he is such a social kid, maybe his problem with the high chair was that he wasn’t at the table with us. So, we tried this taking the tray off and pushing him up to the table. That didn’t work either. So at Sunday morning breakfast we tried this . . .
He was happier but still not really thrilled. He’s been able to sit on people’s laps at our house for so long and that is what he likes to do here. He sits in a high chair at home perfectly fine but here. Oh my! Oh well, this too shall pass.
There were lots of good moments. He is used to having some daddy time on Saturdays, since Lauren used to work Friday nights and got some sleep then. He was quite the daddy’s boy while he was here too.
He like cleaning tools. He got very busy in the utility room.
I made some homemade sugar free ice cream before they left Sunday afternoon.
When it was time to go, he was definitely ready. He decided to help Brian put his shoes on.
I think that is enough pictures for one week. So I’ll run for now. I hope you have a great weekend. I intend to.
Until next time, God bless,
