So my dd and I have been having a bit of a power struggle about mealtime. I have never been a fan of the cleanplate club or forcing her to stay in her chair- it's just the two of us and frankly- I don't model that either... We have dinner together always, but sometimes other meals ....
Anyway so she loves having me boost her up and down out of her chair and she has to go potty or get more water, or another napkin- many excuses so I am always getting up to get her up and down (which she can do by herself, but she likes the "help")
Fast forward to dinner miracle!! I bought an old wood table on CL, sawed the legs to 17", put down some FLOR carpet tiles and sewed new covers for some huge ugly pillows..... we have Japanese style seating, everyone sits on the floor on their own big cushion, and she can stand comfortably too, AND I don't have to get up.
I LOVE it, it looks great as well and I have much better dinner posture and even I am less likely to get up and fuss in the kitchen.
BRILLIANT if I do say so myself. So happy with this idea.
