For Christmas, Santa brought Charlotte her very own kitchen. We put the play kitchen in our real kitchen so that Charlotte could cook with us at meal times. That placement has made for some funny moments as well as some neat learning opportunities – for us! For instance, did you know that according to Charlotte all you need to make cornbread is a piece of play sandwich bread, a corn cob and a microwave! Adorable.Sometimes, like tonight, Charlotte announces that SHE is making dinner. Wayne and I are then instructed to SIT DOWN (on the kitchen floor) and hold various cups, pans and play foods. Charlotte is very serious and tells us what she is doing like we are her students - it is just too cute.
