Kitchen Helper

Little Peachy received a very special Christmas gift from her grandpa. I have been wanting a way for Peachy to safely help me out in the kitchen. We have learned that she is not to be trusted standing, or sitting, on chairs. She will  bail off on a whim usually learning well the effects of gravity. I saw kitchen towers in several children's catalogs but really didn't like the price that was attached. I figured that my father would be able to replicate the commercial towers for us. I sent him a few links and away he went. It is such a blessing to have a someone who has the time, talent and tools for such things. :o) (You may remember that he also made Peachy's crib.) We couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

Not such a good shot of Peachy, but a good shot of the entire kitchen helper.
You can't tell by the pictures, but I also asked that my dad make the tower able to fold up for storage. The platform can be folded up and the sides hinge in. Have I mentioned how much we love it??

Wow! What a fantastic idea!

I am also amazed at how clear your counters are! I spose Peachy helps with that too.
