Greg and I have been going back and forth about getting Jayden a play kitchen. Admittedly, a piece of me wants to get one for me, as I didn’t have one growing up.
Greg feels that Jayden doesn’t need a play kitchen… because it’s girly. He should have a workbench or a grill. I feel that he can have a workbench, grill, and a kitchen because real men know their tools and their way around the kitchen. Am I right? My hope is for Jayden to be a well-rounded, self-efficient individual. What if he marries a woman who can’t cook? Or what if she wants a break from slaving over a hot stove? Can she get a day? Just a day. What if Jayden stays single? I don’t want him withering around the house totally helpless, waiting for wifey to cook dinner (ehehm) or turning to frozen pizzas, hotdogs, pop tarts, and takeout.
Needless to say, I won the verbal scuffle. Oh, and helpless hubby is currently receiving cooking lessons from moi.
Where do you and your spouse stand on the boys and play kitchens debate?
Edited to add: We bought him a kitchen for Christmas and Greg made sure to throw in a drill set, lol.
