Linz lent this little kitchen to Christian and its adorable and he loves it....but...I got the genius idea to put batteries in it. They make the "stovetop" sizzle. It's like this low hissing white noise that makes me go insane. Christian apparently knows this, turns it on and then leaves the room. I even asked him today if he knew that noise makes Mommy want to rip her hair out. His reply, " yeah Mama!" Then he laughed and pulled on his hair! Wow.
