my go to: the sink

Last night, after my long, bum day of accomplishing nothing, I couldn’t handle the thought of cooking dinner so I planned on getting take-out. I surprised myself and I’m happy to report that I did whip up a nice, nutritious meal of sorts. I did something.

Some tricks of the trade. This is how you keep a toddler busy when you need to cook. THE SINK. the magic sink. Mateo is obsessed.

sinks & toddlerssinks and toddlerstoddlers and sinksYes, the child is wearing a backpack. As per his own request. He’s a funny little man.

After seeing these photos, my dad reminded me of a video he caught of my brother Seth playing at the kitchen sink when he was one. My dad was taping him for a whole minute before realizing it was a BOOK that Seth was dunking in the soapy sink water. The fascination with water lives on another generation. Feel free to flash back and watch that “excitement” here.

  1. Well duh. Everyone knows that it’s de rigueur to wear a backpack when you’re playing at the sink! :-) The video of Seth was sweet, too. It was just a moment ago that he was that little. Makes me happy and sad at the same time.

    • It’s amazing how time just marches on. The days are long and the years are short, aren’t they?!

  2. Rachel:

    It is particularly cute when Mateo echoes back to you and your family’s childhood because it all takes place in the same home. I loved the pics and video!

  3. Cathy Clark:

    Aravis was a water baby at this age – she loved water from just about anything – drinking fountains at the park – water squirting ALL over using her little thumb and squealing with glee, sink, tub, etc.

    • Oh yes, I recognize it all. Water is Mateo’s Happy place. That and parks. And snacks. And bubbles. And trains. ha :)

  4. rox:

    so adorable! the backpack seriously makes these photos!

  5. What a sweetie! I can’t wait until Amelie starts helping out around the house instead of just making mess ;)

    • OH, I wouldn’t go so far as to say that he’s doing much HELPING…but he is a sweetie. I’ll give him that. :)

  6. He’s so darn cute and yes, I was wondering why he was wearing a backpack, lol.

    • No rhyme or reason to a toddler, ha. :) So happy that you stopped by, Tristan! :)
