My daughter has an amazing creative power. I love when she gets lost in her own little world. From trips on her horse and carriage to Nonny and Poppy’s house, to her made up songs, to her endless scenarios of what she can do with a little red box on wheels we have in our playroom. She AMAZES me and has taught me so much in her short two years of life. :-)
I have a 15 month old and I am pregnant with #3… between the two of us we spend a lot of time at the doctor’s office. Daddy is in the medical field as well so we occasionally take trips to the hospital. She loves role-playing Doctor. She generally makes up her own situations with things we have around the playroom. After observing and listening to her for a while now I created an environment that expanded off her play. I set the playroom up as a doctor’s office the night before and let her wake up to it. I should have video taped the initial reaction. Priceless.
I can't even begin to tell you about her visions and conversations that took place in that room for next two hours, the hour after lunch, and the hour before bed.
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'” - George Bernard Shaw
