I'm reminded these days of making forts and tree houses and playing pretend for hour upon hour.
I walk into our house and on our porch and see dishes and dolls scattered random places. Tea cups are getting broken for the sake of pouring tea into cups over and over again.
Today Evee went to a friends surprise birthday tea party. There were little tea cups, lots of pretend and fairies fluttering every while making wands. It was beautiful and sweet.
It's easy to forget the ease and simplicity of being 3 (or 4 or 5)...how playing house, pretending to be grown-up, and having a store were games.
I'm amazed to realize how we are modeling for her (all the time) and then fascinating to watch how it is portrayed in play...realizing that many things are being learned about life and relationships in the cycle of watching and playing.
