Got little ones? Respect their height situation! They can’t reach everything we can & we don’t always want them reaching what they can reach. Try reorganizing your kitchen storage areas. Set aside a lower cabinet just for them. Put their favorite cups, plates, bowls, utensils, dry snacks, napkins and roll of paper towels in their reach. If that’s not an option, consider a small bookshelf at the end of the counter.
Cleaning out the lowest shelf in the fridge (or on the door) will help them reach items for themselves. If they’re not strong enough to open the fridge, try a mini cooler or insulated bag with kid friendly ice packs strategically placed within their reach. It’ll cut down on the “Mom rat race” of retrieving items they need but can’t reach & also keep little feet out of your fridge. Yup, that’s how they keep reaching the juice. You’re not crazy. Well, maybe a little. You’ve got kids, right? 😉
Until next time!
