I don’t know when exactly they started playing so well together, but my boys have been angels for the last few days. They still get a little rough, but they are playing like best friends. Colby likes to be the son, Benji is the Dad, Jenna is the mom and Jack is the other son.
Today we are playing pet store. Colby and Benji are ordering and buying animals for their pet store (their room). I ordered 3 worms and got one for free, and get this, they are all girls and prenamed! Colby named them for me: Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Mermaid and Squirmy. Benji has seven cats and Colby has 8 parrots.
Benji just follows Colby around like a little lost puppy dog, but loves being treated like a big boy. There is something to be said for getting kids up, dressing them and inviting them to play in the back yard. They will only get better and more inventive. I am kind of sad for Benji, since Colby will be heading to school in less than two weeks. I guess that means Benji and I are going to have to have our own adventures.
Now, I’m going to attempt to make two transformer pillows. I’ll let you know how that goes.
