Daniel and Elizabeth were intently focused on their play this morning.
Me: What are you playing?
Daniel: Dolls’ house versus aliens.
Me: Who are the aliens?
Daniel: My cuddly toys. They do mean things to the dolls’ house animals.
Me: What sort of mean things do they do?
Daniel: They squash them.
It is true that some of Daniel’s cuddly toys look like aliens. Especially the ones I’ve crocheted.
Elizabeth has started naming her toys. She has Dent and Dent’s Mum and Nicky and Nicky’s Mum. She has also taken to picking up blades of grass from our walk to school each morning and calling them “persons”. Here she is with two of her “persons”.
