This was one of my gifts.
It’s a magical pot.
It has a 4-quart bottom. Then a pasta insert. Then a big steamer insert (as in, I can fit 2-3lbs of veggies in it – a family of 6, do the math). Then another steamer insert on little ball feet (hey, whatever, I’ll roll with it), another insert with a bowl-like bottom (like a double boiler) and a lid. It’s fabulous! We’ve already broken it in using it to steam veggies for the whole brood and making Eggs Benedict.
A lunchbag. He’s been on a school kick lately – lunchboxes, riding the bus, etc. I seem to remember the 7yo going through this for a brief while. Trying to redirect him a la the “look, something shiny!” routine.
Then after getting some food into them, we showed them the basement.
Hubby and I were picking up the tickets for the light cruise, and futzed around downtown for a little bit. Just us and the baby. Closest we get to a date lately.
Anyway, came across this in the totally groovy (but more boutique/expensive) toy store. Was the last one. I snapped it up. It’ll go in the homeschool room somewhere. Out of reach of the 2yo though – she likes hiding/relocating things for us. Hmmm… maybe she’ll end up involved with witness protection at some point in her eventual career…
