joannqn Posted November 30, 2011 Share Posted November 30, 2011 (edited) We have cheap ceramic dishes from Walmart. We have 8 dinner plates, 7 salad plates, and 4 bowls for our family of 6. If we have anyone over for dinner, we have to buy paper plates and plastic silverware. Today my four year old dropped one of the salad plates. Not long after, my nine year old dropped three of the bowls. He was getting something out of the cabinet, knocked the shelf causing the little pin that holds the shelf in place to fall out, so the whole stack of bowls when sliding out onto the tile floor. With only one bowl, I really had no choice but to go buy dishes. I opted to buy two boxes of Corelle. They were cheap and break resistant. Four of the plates had defects in the pattern (color scratched off in places), but I didn't have time to go back before we needed to use them so I resigned myself to just live with it. A few minutes ago my four year old dropped one of the brand new mugs. He says he slipped on his socks. 5 dishes broken in one day! 5!
