I knew very early on that my middle child was destined to be a chef. At just a year old, she played with kitchen utensils instead of baby dolls. Instead of using my pots and pans as a drum set, she pretended to make mommy’s dinner by stirring invisible food around and around until she said “ALL DONE!” and handed me an empty pot with such pride and excitement. At the age of two, the highlight of her week was visiting those little fake kitchens inside of home improvement stores. True story. I am literally laughing out loud as I type this because I am thinking about how happy she would get every time we would go within 5 feet of those kitchen design centers. The excitement she had over kitchen appliances was identical to how most kids react when they go into a candy store. The best part was when she would oooh and ahhh just as much as I would when walking past all the expensive stuff. Since high- end kitchen appliances are sort of my guilty pleasure in life, this would just melt my heart. We clearly bonded very early on over our love of kitchen gadgets. He He! For her third birthday, she asked for a cooking party. Being the slightly crazy mom that I am, I said sure we can do that and off I went to plan a cooking party for 10 kids all under the age of 5 at my house. That’s right, I said ALL under the age of 5 and at MY house. Remember, I said I was slightly crazy!
