Benjamin has a strong obsession with doors and refrigerators. His preoccupation with doors has made it possible for me to get things done. I would just put him in front of a door and I would have several minutes to get something done. As he perfected his crawling skills this solution has not worked. He has what I call "refrigerator speed." Once he hears a door open, preferably the fridge, he crawls with all the speed he can muster to get there before we close it. I no longer have been able to get anything done because I spend every minute keeping him out of the dishwasher, fridge, and other various places involving doors.
I needed a solution. I needed a distraction. I am convinced toys are really cool things invented by parents who needed diversion tactics. While shopping with a friend we stumbled upon a consignment sale. I found two fantastic toys that have doors. One of these items was a kitchen. It has 3 doors he can open and close! His Grandma got it for him for his birthday. Which leads me to why we need the marriage ref. So in place of calling the NBC show, I will post for you all to comment and judge.
Is a kitchen set a gender neutral toy?
I like to think we are encouraging the next Bobby Flay to make his mark on the culinary world.
