We have always used Corel dishes. They are supposed to be shatter proof. That's not true. We've proven it over and over. Occasionally when I am at Walmart I will pick up another bowl to replace one that has been broken, or is bound to be broken sometime soon.
A couple weeks ago I was walking through the camping department, and saw some blue speckled metal bowls. THESE bowl will NEVER break. I bought one, with the idea that I would get one every time I go to Walmart, and phase out the Corel bowls (or just break them all in the meantime).
You wouldn't believe the ruckus this blue bowl has caused. It became the COVETED blue bowl. Naomi refused to eat cereal out of any other bowl. Pretty soon, the others were joining in, fighting over who got to use the blue bowl.
I have picked up several more blue bowls since purchasing the first one. There are enough for the littles to use for breakfast, and if the big kids NEED to use a blue bowl, too, they are just gonna have to wash one out until I get back to Walmart enough times to get more bowls.
"A lazy man buries his hand in the bowl, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again." Proverbs 19:24
