I have a pre-schooler and a toddler at home, and you know that when little kids are involved, accidents are bound to happen. My eldest daughter Danae, has broken at least 3 drinking glasses so far — one she dropped on her foot which resulted in a small cut on her big toe, another she managed to swipe off a low table, and another she accidentally hit with a spoon. She has her share of mishaps with plates too, as well as my husband King.
A week or so ago, King accidentally bumped the tray that our helper was holding, and the small plate fell to the ground, from a height of around 4 feet. A few days ago, we had visitors over for dinner and we had our dessert in the bedroom along with the kids. There was an empty plate and an empty mug beside my computer, 2 feet above the ground, which somehow fell when either Danae or my youngest Noelle or both of them passed by while playing or trying to get something. None of them broke! Not even the mug! Thank God for Corelle!
The other day, I was at a tea party and my friend’s daughter dropped a plate. When it didn’t break, I automatically said “Corelle!” And I was right. I rejoice every time I see a Corelle plate or mug fall to the ground and stay perfectly whole. It’s definitely a worthy investment!
