Yesterday was a momentous day that shall forever be known to the world as August the Sixth, but to me will be The Day That Erma Gave Up the Boost.
I’ve been kind of putting the nag on her a bit to give up her booster seat. I told her at the end of the summer, she would be in a regular chair. There’s not any reason for her to use a booster at this point:
- She’s as tall as a five-year-old (at least).
- She sits in regular chairs without boosters at restaurants, friends’ houses, and other places
- I can’t think of any other reasons. Which is why I didn’t pick this particular war to go to the battlefield.
On Monday, Erma told me that she was done with her booster seat. Randomly, apropos of nothing — she is done, she says. We’ll see, I think.
On Tuesday night, she says, she is going to sit in the regular chair. We switch the chairs around and voila! Erma has a regular chair!
But then! Sigourney notices that there is an open spot at the booster seat! She no longer wants to sit in her high chair! She goes for the gold and…she’s in the booster seat!
