We Would Never Spoil Our Child...

Sure we would... (do)

Having spent our fair share of time on the road with AA, we got to thinking. Why not incorporate a bit of the in-room convenience we enjoy in the hotel room for Alyzabeth's use at home...?

I had this mini-fridge (the pic above is a stock photo) in my office and since transitioning into my SAHP role it had just been gathering dust in a back room.
AA can now get her own water or milk and she's very good at putting back what she doesn't finish. It's kind of cute watching her open her fridge, grab a quick drink and then move on to some heavy duty play time.
At the end of the day, I just pitch what is left and start with new cups in the morning.

Sure it's a novelty but hey, she loves it. And if baby girl is happy...daddy and mama are happy :)
peace

That is NOT spoiling! (cough, cough) That is fostering independence and guiding her in making healthy snack and drink choices.

Oh I like how that sounds... That's it.

Oh I like that sound ot that too--You know I need a new fridge too--cough cough!!
No I agree, this is too cool & she can feel like a big girl & start to understand choices & decisions--but please don't let her grow up TOO fast!!

Leave it to Tonggu Mama to spin that one!

I think it is a GREAT idea. You know, I have one in my garage that I used for about 6 months in my old office and I was thinking of setting up the same for my 10 year old down in his video game cave in our WAY overcrowded basement. I will use TM's words and add some mini waters, etc. for our little one too!

Great idea!!

Love it!! Maddy has just learned to open our big fridge. However, she sometimes forgets to shut it. I love Tonggu Mom's comment. Fostering Independance it is!

So great! I started wondering if we had a small fridge anywhere in our house. . .ha!

Debz said...

Love it!
LOL! Love TM's comment!

Ah, admit it.... AA being able to get her own drinks means Daddy doesn't have to get up and get them!!!

Good time management, too.
