Kitchen at the Gramps

On the days I work, I drop Bubbles off at my parents' place. Her grandparents love her to bits and provide the best childcare I could ask for.

Bubbles looks forward to my return home from work though. The moment she hears the front gate open, she'll run to the door and wait in anticipation. I will be greeted with a happy smile and a request for a hug. She will then take my hand and lead me to whatever is the excitement of the day. It melts me every time.

A few days ago, I arrived at my parents' and Bubbles immediately pulled me to this:
She brought my hands to the 'tap' and said Mummy Wash!

Seeing the 'tap', 'sink' and a real dishwashing sponge, I was most amused!

My dad actually took the effort to set this up for her. The rack is an actual kitchen rack that he dug out, and he used proper tubing and all for the tap. His intention was to run REAL water through this, to the understandable protests of my mother.

This kitchen reminds me of the Shoe-Rack Kitchenette I wrote about previously. Only more realistic. My parents tell me they plan to wrap the 'sink' up in aluminium foil to make it look more sink-like!

Bubbles apparently spent much of the day 'washing' her pots and pans and cooking up a storm. She does a pretty mean 'washing' too, I saw her using the sponge on both the insides and outsides of her pots!

You don't see any 'food' in this pic as she had already brought me a pot of 'soup' that 'contained' eggs, pork and carrots, and that was declared yummy by the lil chef :)

She also has 2 sets of crockery and a wash cloth (to 'dry' her dishes). I chuckle to think about how I shall remind her of this when she's old enough to help me with washing real dishes!

Wow! What a great idea. The Grandpa is so innovative. And you are so blessed with such great trusty help. ^^

Haha, oops, no we didn't do it in the end. There was no incentive as she was happy enough with it! Any further embellishment would really be more for the adults than her!
