Home Maryanne's Tales Family When Kitty Brings the Kitchen to the Sitting Room

When Kitty Brings the Kitchen to the Sitting Room


Idleness has never been Kitty’s forte. The boy is always moving around doing one thing or another and you can never find him ‘standing still’ as such, unless only when he’s watching commercials on TV. He absolutely loves commercials – I’m still trying to figure that out.

When he gets bored in the sitting room, he promptly finds his way to the kitchen store and begins bringing utensils one by one and spreads them all out on the floor. Sufuria’s, cups, plates, empty containers, spoons, lunch boxes. What he does is that he opens the cabinets in the kitchen within his reach and draws out the paraphernalia one by one, bringing them over… until I soon realize that in no time, the entire kitchen has moved into the sitting room!

Then he sits down to play with them, talking to them in some gibberish language that I can’t understand. I never disturb him when he’s engrossed in this activity and let him do his thing, mainly because it gives me some blissful moments of peace :).

But is all good because in the same way he loves transporting them to the sitting room – is the same way he loves transporting them back to the kitchen. He remains happy and I remain happy :).

  1. Waa, Maryanne i thought i was the only one, i have laughed, yesterday my boy was playing cha mama. cooking with his toys and telling me “mum tamu” so i had to pretend that am actually eating his nicely made food, lol, i think he’s missing a playmate.

  2. This is sooo hilarious Maryanne, and I feel so consoled. There is this one cabinet that Ian like to get things from and finds endless joy in removing and returning things.

  3. At some I wondered whether this was a big hint that he wants to be a chef… still trying to understand the fascination with kitchen stuff 🙁

  4. Fellow moms, from your comments, you all have boys (apart from Miss Babes), so am I gathering that this is a boy thing?
    And yes Miss Babes – anything goes, hata steel wool 🙂

  5. Okey,i thought i was the only one going through this with our 2 and 1/2 old Son.He has a thing for kitchen stuff especially spoons of sizes,colour and shape. He cries out “Mum toon!toon!” he has broken handles to a number of pans.
