Baby Seat

November 15, 2017

This was the living room/dining room. It's about 6 square meters.(64 square feet)

We ate meals around this table. I played toys and did homeworks on this table too. 


Around 1990s in Shanghai, the high chairs designed for little kids didn't exist. So when I was too short for the table, my parents stacked two stools together for me to reach.

It worked for years.

One time a toy rolled off the table so I bent down to reach for it. The 2-story stools collapsed and I wrenched my wrist pretty bad.


Many things at that time looked dangerous even crazy from the current perspective.  People didn't have enough money and knowledge to raise a kid in a safer and more scientific way. I won't try to hide that side in this series. Good or bad, it was my childhood.
