Dear Little Bear
What a special day today was. You recieved your mud kitchen from The pole yard.
I’m sure I was much more excited than you. It’s such a lovely kitchen. Sturdy and durable. Perfect for little boy messes and enthusiasm.
Your excitement was contagious as you explored the kitchen, turned the knobs and tried to see if the tap worked.
The oven door kept you busy as you opened and closed it.
I loved watching you at play and listening to the chatter of what you were going to cook as you rushed about finding new kitchen utensils.
Before I had time to explain how we can play with the kitchen you took the lead asking for water in the basin.
First you washed your dishes with splooshy waves of bubbles and I happily noted to myself that this is outside so no more mess on the tiles.
Then you found a pot and out came the sand….
Before I knew it you’d mixed up a pot of mud stew and were adding Ronan’s gem stones in one by one as potatoes and onions.
Whilst Ronan was far from impressed I was quite excited to see you remembered the vegetables that we had added to our stew the other night.
I see many hours of happy play with your new kitchen my bear and as your mom I couldn’t be happier.
Happy cooking my little chef.
