What an eventful weekend!!!

So this weekend was one that I wouldn't want to happen again! We went to a birthday party for a friend that was held at Winger's restaurant, They had it set up in the bar area, (but Idaho is so set back they allow children at the tables in the area just not the actual bar) So we asked for a high chair like we always do for Kylan, but they said we could not have a high chair in the Bar area cause of a fire hazard/ liability due to the table being taller than the high chair. they offered us a booster seat. ( never used on before) and we sat in the booth with kylan in it sebastan and I on each side of him. He was doing great and just got his meal to eat, Everytime Sebastian got up to grap something from the Party table Kylan would try to fallow....
Well In seriously a 1/2 sec or less Kylan leaned over to go to sebastian and he fell out of the booster seat, I tried to grab him but he slid through my hands and i couldn't very well cause the booster seat was in my way, it was so fast and scary .. He hit his head pretty hard. a big bump formed right way.
We left ASAP to go to the doc. They were closed though. We didn't go unconscious or anything just a BIG cry! Sebastians army training skills kicked in (lol) and he checked him out while i called the after hours nurse. He seemed fine, we just had to keep a close eye on him and have him sleep wih us.
He is doing good, plenty of energy if not more! He does however have a huge knot/bruise in the middle of his forehead! Poor little guy.
I felt so bad, and i was so upset.
However.. The restaurant mgr/owner called at apologized, but were not very helpful. I requested that instead of me sewing you, change the requirements of high chairs and boosters for the bar area. Not allowed!! I don't agree with letting your child under 21 be in that area.
I also looked up the age appropriate guidelines for high chairs and booster seats.
High chairs =5 mo to 3 years
Booster seats= 3 to 6 years.
So Just be careful of your little one in restaurants and boosters!

On a lighter note.. I finally finished Kylans name canvas's for his room.
I painted the camo of he canvas then glued on the wood letters that i painted white. Im very happy with the turn out of them!

Sorry so long! Enjoy your day!

Oh poor little guy! That restaurant should know the rules for age appropriate seating devices. Glad it was nothing too serious!
