I’ve learned that a disorganized playroom is a sign that fun has occurred or is currently in progress. Generally speaking, the disaster that is our playroom, really tells a story. Isabella loves having fun! But even with the colossal of toys that she has just oozing over the brim of the toy box; she’s very selective in the toys that she plays with daily.
As she calls out for “bingo” and urgently gets out of her seat to locate him, we all know that she’s watching Rise of Planet of the Apes or an episode from her favorite show that has a small chimpanzee with a tambourine. It’s actually very adorable, and we love encouraging her to be inspired during play time.
That is why she loves playing phone, because we interact with her, make up conversation, and then hand her the phone so she can continue the conversation with her “friends”. At age 2, Isabella is very bright, she really enjoys mimicking the actions of her siblings and parents, when she leaves the house; she ensures that she has her phone, “baby hippo” and her backpack filled with drinks and snacks for the road trip. It’s a challenge for me because it’s really a sign that she’s growing up, she very insistent upon opening her own car door, climbing in the back seat, and buckling her own seat belt, but not short of ensuring that baby hippo is right there secure with her in the car seat.
I don’t remember any of my other children being so independent, so in tune with what they’re watching and connecting it with their toys, her creativity speaks mountains and bounds about the kind of kid she’s going to be when she gets older, I’m both excited and apprehensive about it really. My 2 year old princess makes massive messes for us to clean up, she’ll cry if she can’t find the toys she’s yearning to connect with, she’ll sleep with her babies and yak into her telephone, and even though there are moments that I’m half-crazy or borderline losing it, I wouldn’t change it for anything.
How does your child play? Does he/she have that go to toy that she can’t live without?
