Old School

Once in a while, we turn back the clock and revisit the old days. In this case, while visiting Grandma and Grandpa Pierce, Mary had the treat of sitting in her Daddy's old high chair from when he was her age. In fact, this high char was first used with Uncle Kevin, who is significantly older than I am. In case you were wondering, high chairs still work after 37 years, with no more padding on the seat and metal pieces that could easily pinch a finger (seriously, how did we ever survive back in the Stone Age?!?!?!).



The last person in the family to use this was Karen, which would have been over 25 years ago. Why does my mom still have it? Well, because she knew she'd have grandkids in a couple decades, which she did. And she also probably figured we'd forget our portable high chair, which we did. Pack rat? Never. 'Prudent' is the word you're looking for. Or maybe 'prophetic.'

Significantly?

I think that Danny is a little self conscious because he is now 9 years from 40. Don't take offense, Kevin. He's old to me if that makes you feel any better.

Sure, she keeps the old school high chair but throws out our rockin' lunchboxes.
