My First Kitchen…
I grew up as a little girl with a younger sister and an older brother. My sister and I logged some serious “residency” hours with our Cabbage Patch Kids and this “hospital” we created in our closet! We had the schedule posted for all the kids – when they napped, got changed, played, were fed… we were Babyland General Hospital.
We also had a HUGE Barbie mansion with a pull string elevator. My Mom has been gifted in sewing for as long as I can remember and she taught me how to sew on a little Holly Hobbie sewing machine when I was in the 2nd and 3rd grade. We made all the Barbie furniture and bedding for the mansion. It was great fun! We even sold some of our “designer bedding” at a garge sale. Pretty impressive :).
I have always dreamed of having a little girl, and playing kitchen with her! Serving tea, making pizza, washing dishes (pretend is way more fun then the real deal) and planning parties. Well my friends, Molly (and I) have a KITCHEN! I have been eyeing it at Target and was able to use giftcards for Sissy to buy this for her room. Its just what I’ve always wanted 🙂 I know she isnt even walking yet……..but we HAVE a kitchen. I’m so excited, although it did take me four hours to put together the “preliminary pre-assembly” parts and the instructions were longer than I am tall. There is a lot to say about a Momma with determination!
