Show & Tell Time August 19, 2009

As many of you know, show and Tell is wasted on elementary schoolers. I’m all kinds of jazzed to be able to live this childhood tradition again, as a grownup who can appreciate it properly. If you’d like to see what the rest of the class is showing (and I hope you do), please pop by Mel’s place.


G and I are big on traditions. We have things that we like to do during certain times of each year. For example, during the fall we make a point to visit some local farms with the boy(s). The farm that we’ve been going to for years, and that had the best hayride EVER, sold their land to a grocery chain recently. So, last fall we had to find a new favorite farm. And we did! But that’s not what I’m showing.


This farm had a walking trail with little houses set up along the way. Each house belonged to a different fairy tale character. Belle had a castle, Tinkerbell had a tree house, and Snow White had a cottage. In Snow White’s cottage, there was a kitchenette. Snow White’s kitchenette was an exact replica of the play kitchen I had as a kid.



I was thrilled. This was hands down my favorite toy as a child. I played house for hours and hours. I washed bottles and bathed my baby dolls in the sink. I loved my kitchen. Unfortunately, we had a house fire when I was 15 and the kitchen was lost.


Needless to say the kitchen won me over, we have a new fall tradition to go visit Snow White’s cottage.
