Months ago someone from church handed down their child activity table to us. We stuck it in the basement, knowing the boys weren’t ready for that yet. Last week tables became the topic of choice in a yahoo group I’m in (for parents of triplets born within 6 months of each other) and it got me thinking that maybe the boys could handle it now.
On Sunday afternoon Nick brought the table up from the basement so we could try it out. After Nick left to head back to church, my sister Laura and I decided to find a spot for the table in the playroom. As we headed back to the playroom while the boys sat excitedly at the table in the living room, I told her I was interested to see what they did when left alone for a moment with the table.
When we looked into the living room about 90 seconds later this is what we saw…
Yeah… not good! We quickly moved the table into the playroom and began teaching the boys the table was for sitting at, not climbing on. There were lots of tears and tantrums over it, but by the time Nick came home that night the boys weren’t climbing on the table anymore.
On Monday we tried coloring at the table! Things went well and the boys are fantastic artists. Biding for an original Jackson, Tyler or Chase starts at $10!
