|Yes, another high chair pic. No, I didn't put Etta there!|
Had a laugh with a friend this week over our high chair. She's a mom of two, and I tried describing the chair to her, but she just couldn't understand what I was talking about. When I said that we could use the chair long after the baby had grown out of it, she collapsed in laughter and tears. All she could picture was us trying to cram our butts into a tiny baby seat.
So I showed her a photo of the chair. "Your baby isn't going to be able to sit up in that!" she squealed. "That's a toddler chair." I had visions of the baby sliding out of the chair and plopping on the floor.
OK...I have a warped sense of humor. I wouldn't want our baby on the floor. And if that happened, I would likely be freaking out and NOT laughing. But it was such a sitcom kind of thing to imagine that it kept cracking us up. I know it's one of those you-had-to-be-there moments, but it's kept me smiling all week. (FYI--there is a baby kit available for the chair if he's on the small side or can't sit up by himself.)
I'm sure we'll have some hits and misses as far as baby purchases go. So to all of you parents out there...what did you find invaluable when your child was 9-months old? What things were a waste of money? What would you recommend? What couldn't you live without?
