Let's Talk About Forks...

As you read in my 'When Less is More' post, I am somewhat of a minimalist when it comes to stuff for my kids.  Don't worry, they have enough toys to entertain the world but when it comes to their gear, I keep it to a minimum.

So, when Little P and Little C had finally conquered eating with a fork, I realized that we had a little problem on our hands.  These plastic forks that I had been giving them couldn't pick up ANYTHING!  I hated them!  At the same time, I couldn't just give them a dessert fork because it was too big! 

So the research began...

In my normal fashion, I spent quite a bit of time reading reviews.  (I don't like to spend our hard earned money on trial and error when I could just spend my time researching what other mom's have said.  Weird, maybe.  But it works.)

So, this is what I found!

For around $8.00 you get 3 forks that are sized to fit their little chubby hands, have rubber gripping, and...dun dun dun dah....CAN POKE THROUGH A PIECE OF STEAK!!!

I am thrilled!  Although the pretty little picture above is of pink/purple forks, you can also buy them in a cool green/blue color combo.  Perfect, 3 forks for Little P and 3 forks for Little C...DONE!

But seriously, as much as I can love forks, I really do love these.  They are the perfect size and they are sharp enough to pick food up but not sharp enough to hurt them.  And in true Jeanne fashion, it's nice to have structure in my silverware drawer when I setting the table.  I get one of each color and we're ready!

So there ya have it folks!  We, well I, talked about forks!  In efforts to make me feel a little less...dorky, comments are encouraged.  :-)

Have a good one!


  1. Hi Jeanne - I don't know if you remember me, but my family went to OLA in Atlanta, and I was in Patrick's class at OLA and Marist. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I've really been enjoying reading your blog - my husband and I haven't started adding to our family yet, but I've been collecting wisdom for when that day comes, and I've found your blog to be full of helpful advice, as well as sweet stories about your family. Anyway, just wanted to say hello!
