Spatulas with Legs

Believe it or not, today was the first time I took both boys on an outing, just the three of us. Aside from SwingDaddy’s trip to get them a pumpkin, we’ve ventured out only as twosomes or the whole family. It felt good to hold Q-ster’s hand as he trotted next to the stroller, and Buster smiled back at us from inside.

They were beautifully behaved, so I’m sure there is some terror to pay in the future, but for the morning, I basked in the mom-ness.

I had a Bed, Bath, and Beyond gift card from our housewarming many months ago, and with the way companies are shutting down left and right, it seemed prudent not to wait any longer. I didn’t have any luck finding a pie top cutter, but there were some nice lightweight mixing bowls that will be handy, given Q-ster’s new requests to bake a pie.

This family of kiddie tools from Head Chef really caught his eye. Aren’t they adorable?

Santa’s going to be bringing him the spatula. He’s also requesting Star Wars sheets, surprise, surprise. Really, it's my fault though. I showed the Pottery Barn Kids catalog to him to help him transition to the idea of getting a real bed. He was resistant to talking about moving his mattress off the floor and onto a frame, until I called it a Star Wars bed. Now we just have to find a bed that doesn't have sharp corners or a princess canopy.

I love that Santa's bringing him a spatula! Once my son fell asleep clutching a spatula and held onto it for his entire nap.

Those are some cute implements.

And you don't need a pie top cutter - just use a little knife.

My 3-year-old is also getting some kitchen implements for Christmas, but none as cute as those. It's one of the downsides of being Canadian - poor retail selection.
