how to deal with make-believe

imaginary birthday

 The other day Sir O burst into the laundry room where I was buried and told me I needed to "come, come, come, come, quick mom!"   I came upstairs and discovered that all the boys in the house had decided that it was the birthday of some puppy-puppets and were throwing them a birthday party.  (In our gentleman's bedroom - by rule a "toy-free" zone.)  I fought the urge to get upset about all the things that weren't where they belonged and grabbed the camera instead.  I am glad these boys are learning how to make-believe.  If I can keep from squelching it, it may prove to be a source of great joy when they need it most.

Learning how to clean up after themselves probably wouldn't hurt either.
