My kids have a playroom, but they still like to utilize our living room as a playroom when I need to be upstairs either trying to get the baby down for a nap, or cooking, or doing something on the desktop in the study, or the like. It is amazing how quickly two little kids can turn an newly cleaned room upside down and how many toys manage to wander upstairs from the playroom every day. And then there are those everyday items like boxes that make for the most interesting objects to incorporate in their play.
Today my middle younger daughter took our ipad and placed half of her little plastic animals around it as if sitting around a table. Then there were two miniature Lego figures that had somehow gotten in the mix of the animals. I caught her, as if deep in thought, with one of the Lego figure’s head in her mouth. It was adorable and she looked so beautiful. I wonder if she was pondering whether to have that Lego figure also join the animals, or if one “person” among the animals was enough.
