Kit for Kat!

Care for some tea?
Posted By SLK on Friday, August 27, 2010   { 6 Comment(s) }
Arrived! The most beautiful porcelain tea set Kit Kat have ever owned. We gifted one to Kat a couple of years ago but it was tiny and now that the girls want to have real tea parties, they wanted to have slightly bigger tea cups. The one Kat owned was kindly passed over to Kit who broke almost all of it on the first day (probably in the excitement of actually having something so close to real!) that now only the tea service basket remains... Kat even went to the extent of asking if she could borrow my Wedgewood which threw me off a bit so I immediately went online and got them their own (if Kat wants to do something, she will get around to doing it eventually and I LOVE my Wedgewood to this day)

I was surprised (yet again!) at how clever Kit has become at picking things online – she knows just how to dart her eyes in the right directions till she’s found what she needs in the least amount of time and she will point her sticky little fingers and touch the screen gleefully with “Can I have that one, pleeeeese?”.

And yet again, I was surprised at the collection Amazon has and tried my best to stick to the Super Saver options but the girls don’t understand, do they? They had to choose a different seller whose tea service looked (in my opinion, wee bit) smarter (shipping dearer of course) and Kat is now that age where she reads all (literally ALL) user comments before making a purchase online SO after much frustration, occasional nodding off (me, who else here is suffering from lack of sleep?), thumb sucking (when Kit got tired of Kat reading everything, we ordered a tea set and I just hoped that it would be the right size as sending a tea set back is not my cup of tea (no pun intended!)

Tea Service for Two

It arrived yesterday and it was a beauty – the girls had their first grown up tea party yesterday with hot chocolate in the teapot, cold milk in the milk pot and sugar where it should be...this one actually has 2 serving plates which were decorated with fresh sandwiches, choc chip cookies and a slice of cake (compliments me) – the girls had a hearty tea with some vague background music playing from Kat's iTunes in her room followed by Kat playing Piano while Kit sang ‘Part of my World’ from The Little Mermaid...one of those rare sisterly evenings which last for over 5 minutes!

That is such a great idea, we are still at the stage where tea parties are held with plastic sets but they do get to use my tea pot, but I am always mother!

Yes, isn't it priceless to be part of their little tea parties?

Though I must admit, since Kit's arrival, I have been invited to fewer and fewer and been asked to supply the goodies only instead :-( and Kat likes to be the 'mother' instead!

Thanks. I love it too!

They had another round of 'lemonade' in it yesterday...too bad its for 2 only. The cookies with it were too delicious yesterday to resist and I joined in with my Starbucks!

I love your description of the whole buying process, children are such discerning shoppers! We are still on a mini porcelain one/plastic set but very much looking forward to this kind of fun!

Kit Kat love to shop :-) and buying is truly such a time consuming process NOW but the good thing is that since they participate in their shopping, they have ownership of everything they select and buy (less wastage).

Hope you get your 'proper porcelain one' soon - the kids will love it!
