Back Story: I had been wanting a Learning Tower for a few months. Nick and I had discussed it because they're so cool but we didn't really have the $199.99 to spend on that, nor did I really want to spend that kind of money on one. But it was one of those things that if we could...well I wanted to. Kate would love it, and she could use it for many years since it's adjustable. So last Wednesday on a whim I decided to stop at Goodwill, only I went to one that we don't normally frequent. I always walk through the furniture first, and what do I spy sitting there? A LEARNING TOWER! I almost passed out. There was no tag, which usually means someone is already planning to buy it and is walking around with the tag so I panicked a bit and had the cashier make an announcement to have whoever had the tag bring it up front or the item would be resold (to me!). Then I waited 5 minutes like a good girl and no one came up front...so they re-tagged the Learning Tower for me.....for $15. Yes...FIFTEEN DOLLARS. Guess what? It was HALF PRICE DAY! So I got Kate a $200 Learning Tower for $7.50. I ROCK. I still can't figure out why someone dropped it off at Goodwill. Hello, Craigslist? Or a baby resell shop? I certainly won't be dropping it at Goodwill when Kate is finished, I can assure you.
So now back to today. Kate helped me make the cobbler, since that only required me to dump a few things into a pan. She added the apples for me.
You get to lick the spatula once you are finished with it.
After finishing the cobbler I had a bunch of stuff to make that she couldn't really help with that easily. So I moved her across the kitchen to the sink, filled it with a little bit of water and dishwashing soap to make bubbles, gave her some cups and a spoon and let her go to town. I also covered the tower with a towel and put a couple of towels on the floor, because I knew girlfriend would be pouring water everywhere.
