That's one day's worth of plastic ware!!!
Before the girls were born, I knew we would have our share of plastic toys, but I didn't realize how much plastic I would have to make room for in my kitchen!
The girls' cups and bowls and plates and forks and spoons now consume the bottom shelf of one large cabinet.
Move over, pretty coffee cups! Get outta the way, delicate serving platters! There are some new kids in town, and they like it rough and tumble, and the brighter the color, the better.
While the girls are usually pretty good about not throwing their plates and cups, I still don't think they're ready for actual glass or ceramic. And I expect the thought of pointy fork tines will probably scare me for a while.
No, I think plastic is the way to go for us right now.
I don't think the girls much care what color their cups and plates and bowls are, although it does serve as a great prompt for dinner conversation.
Kiddie plastic ware just seems to come in the most outrageous color combinations...and maybe that's part of what makes it seem so obnoxious to me.
...well, that, and the fact that it's taking over my kitchen...one cabinet and dishwasher rack at a time.
