Imaginations and pretending have been the highlight of play time as of late. This has been one of my favorite things to watch develop in their little lives so far. Although Adam is still not much of a talker, he understands everything and "gets" whatever they are pretending to do. One evening while I was making supper, I heard chattering in Adam's room and went in to see what they were doing. I was informed, "We're driving our cars!" And of course these "cars" were filled with all of their most precious belongings. Seriously, who needs real toys!
Here, they are being kings. They can both fit inside this cabinet, and that is their castle. Luke also made up a little catchy song that they sing while they march around the house. "I am the king, I am the king, I am the king of the jungle!" Just typing that makes the song get stuck in my head again.
Now here, your guess is as good as mine. I was cleaning the kitchen while they played in the back yard. I looked out the window to see them marching side by side across the yard, complete with their hats of choice, and one with a bat and one with a ratty old broom. This is where they were by the time I got outside to take a picture. These are definitely some of the best parts of my Mommy days!
