The end of an era....

It all started last Friday, when Tess wanted to have her dinner standing in the Learning Tower while I prepared dinner for Hubby and I.

I figured it was a Friday and since I am wild and crazy like that, standing and eating at the counter would be fun for the little missy.


Then yesterday morning I told her to go to her high chair for breakfast. As I went to put her in the high chair, she crossed her arms, glared at me and said, "NO!"

So off to Wal-Mart we went. And made the below purchase.


And she could not be any prouder of her pink booster seat. P.R.O.U.D. In fact, she has crawled up in it even when it isn't meal time.

So I bid a sweet and sad farewell to the beautiful high chair that I so lovingly painted and distressed. You will no longer be needed in the Coco household. You will be heading to Allen, Texas, where you will be loved and cherished by baby Elaine and your Auntie KellKell.

I love you sweet, high chair. And thank you for the past 4 years of holding my babies as they ate!

Boo-hoo.

This is too cute. I love seeing that she was so happy with her booster, big girl seat. It is sad when you get out of the baby stage and don't need the things you once did. It happens so fast. I feel your pain. :)

Have a good week!

This sort of thing makes me very, very sad. The last time I sorted Mini's toys and put some in boxes for storage...I cried. I'm a sissy.

Good to know you have "clothing optional" dining at your house, too!
