LOL.

 

Laugh with me.  My husband uniquely solved a problem.

 

Many kids.  One table.  

 

Our table sat eight.  That was already a problem.

You add in little kids with play-dough, manipulatives, kids doing "serious" work, my coffee, a laptop.... 

Then you have kids doing puzzles or playing a boardgame and someone who wants dinner served.  We manage it and it's okay, but thanks to a local taco place doing a remodel, lol, we've solved our problem.

 

The only catch is my house looks like a burger joint.  But, hey, it's only for a season, right?!

I'd love to have a basement with that set up! It'd be amazing for parties! You could have four board games going at once!

I'd keep it set up in expectation of eventual grandkids, who needs a dining room table?.  Also, you can make/buy a special cushion for each child to sit on.  Make certain tables for certain activities......

I want that and I only have two kids, AND we don't use chairs/table because we're floor-sitters.

So very clever!
