I never really understood how much little M plays with her older sister during the day, until older sister was gone for most of it and I was left to fill the void. I can’t tell you how tempting it is to pop in a movie so I can snooze (hey I just found out I’m severely anemic…don’t judge!) or do other things but for the most part I refrain. We spend time running errands, going to the library and playing dolls. A lot of dolls. I can’t quite keep up with her imagination and I laugh at how much I actually played with Barbies when I was little. I mean hours and hours of Barbies. Man. Adults are boring.
Miss M is constantly bringing me her dolls and saying, “You like to play?” Okaaaaay. So I stop what I’m doing and play 5, 10, 15 minutes at a time. Today the dolls went to the store to get some rice, chips and popcorn. Variety is key. It might not be the most titillating 5 or 10 minutes of my life but it makes Munchkin so happy and I can rarely refuse her request.
Oh yeah, don’t you love Rapunzel’s dreads? Thanks be to her spending 90% of her life in the bathtub.
