Once upon a time, when I was 2 years old, my Dad made me a play kitchen. It was yellow and had a sink, a stove with burners that turned red when you turned the knobs on, an oven with a rack, and a refrigerator/freezer. Mom stocked my kitchen with mini sized cups, plates, and silverware. I had play food, a tea set, and cookware. I even had a blender, a toaster, and a mixer.
Guess what? I have all of these again! I also have a doll wagon and buggy, a high chair, and a tiny cradle. My Mom has been bringing me a bunch of kid stuff so we have things for little ones to play with when they come to visit. It has been so much fun going through the boxes of my old toys- so many memories! I'll have to get some more boy stuff eventually, but I figure they can play outside and get tractor rides from Josh for now.
My kitchen has been moved several times over the years and has suffered some wear and tear, but I love it and think I'll keep it in its "well loved" state.
