I Wish That I Could Send My Son His Wooden Play Kitchen Again

October 7, 2011

My son is incredibly into to food since the day he was born and I can remember him loving to look at cooking shows about ages 2 and 3 years. Those were the days I could send him to the wooden play kitchen for children that we acquired just for him to pretend to cook.

I imagine in getting him such a play kitchen at such a tender age I invited him into the genuine kitchen now that he's older. I should watch him now at age 9 as he is always in the kitchen mixing up a recipe as he would say to me.

Special recipe for scrambled eggs was one I remember lately. Eggs, milk, cheese, salt, pepper, butter and garlic which I discovered are very good scrambled eggs! I have marvelled if all this cooking and recipe making has come natural to my boy or was the desire encouraged so much from the toy kitchen area I set up for him when he was younger.

I would guess it was both his natural instinct and the encouraging play area to express his self that still gives him a wish to want to cook. I'm not against this idea at all and looking forward to a point when I don't will need to cook meals when he will be a teen! A teen that not only can run a microwave however can cook a 4 course meal is what I am imagining.

We never know how encouraging play activities for children will continue into their lives however I think as we see certain traits of our youngsters we should encourage those qualities because we never know where they may lead our kids. Maybe I will not have to cook soon and perhaps he becomes a chef when he grows up.
