it's officially on & popping when it comes to shoshanna's imagination skills these days. it's somewhat super boring to sit there and build the fiftieth duplos tower of the morning, but sometimes you get this window into the remembering of how it felt to play like that, to staple bubble-wrap together into sleeping bags for the toy giraffe and his girl, and to use a cocktail umbrella to shield them from the rain. she demands, "BUILD, mama, BUILD!" and i see her watching me turn the plastic blocks into a tree fort with a slide going into the ocean, mostly watching and figuring out how to create worlds of her own someday. it's important work, playing.
check back in tomorrow afternoon for our first little giveaway from me to you!
