Bug and Papa enjoy an evening ritual of milk and cookies. Papa has taken great joy in teaching him how to correctly dip, nibble and sip. Did you know there was a correct way of doing this? Me either. This ritual takes place sitting at the kitchen island and always puts me on edge because our stools are backless and I have visions of him falling off backwards. One night I suggested to my husband that a step stool/chair like the one my great grandmother had would be a perfect solution. Of course, I had no hope of finding one as this was many many moons ago. But, I thought I might be able to find something similar so I started searching online. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the company (Cosco) still manufacturers these stools. I have such sentimental memories of this little red chair that seemed to have been in my great grandmothers kitchen my whole life.
Who would be sitting in it was a constant source of argument among the cousins and I remember the younger kids were elevated to counter height by a rather thick copy of Ma Bells yellow pages. An exact replica of this wonderful memory now sits in my kitchen. Bug just loves his new chair and the fact that he can use the pull out steps to climb up and down all by himself is a big plus. Our yellow pages aren't any thicker than a magazine, but a nice fat hardcover book gives him just the right height to enjoy his cookies and milk.
