Our Kitchen Counter

My boys love to sit at our kitchen bar counter.  Our house's floorplan is open, a wide space so that while sitting in one of the bar stools, you can see most of the living area from the kitchen counter.  It's great for parties and for watching the kids play while I sit and work on the day's To Do lists.  There's nothing particularly special about the counter itself, the color a soft black, flecked with grays.  But still, the counter is important.

I don't know if it's the height of the bar stools or if they like that the stools spin, but there's something that draws them to the kitchen counter.  They sit and talk to me about what I'm doing, writing, or making.  They ask questions and make requests and I respond, admittedly with annoyance at times.  We play restaurant from the sides of the counter, ordering sausage pizzas and strawberry milkshakes and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from one another and serving them up with imaginary flourish.
