I was at a swanky restaurant for lunch the other day (a rare occasion with no children). The meal was wonderful, my crab cake even came with a fresh crab claw positioned on top!
As I looked around the restaurant I noticed that there weren’t any other children around (this must be the power lunch crowd). Then a mother and her toddler arrived to join her husband for lunch. The server wheeled out what I thought was an antique. It turned out to be the Restaurant’s high chair! I don’t think I have seen a high chair that old in years. The mom was delighted when she saw the chair at the table and said, “Oh, they have one!”
I tried to google a picture of it but I think it must have been manufactured, pre-internet days.
Why is it that as parents were are just happy when a restaurant has a high chair? Why, when we are paying designer prices for our meal, do we not expect designer high chairs (or at least ones that conform to today’s safety standards?)
