Hello there! I'm Kathleen, a former art teacher and co-creator of two young boys. I'm perpetually in search of creative ways to spice up our daily lives, and always in search of a good cup of coffee and a knitting project. Join us in our adventures in making and doing, and making do.
I'm noticing glimmers of it every day--the boys are starting to play together.
More accurately, Jude is grabbing at everything, while Soren plays imaginatively. And Jude is just animated enough for Soren to pretend he's a character (or prop, depending on the play theme). He does this sometimes with Oscar the cat too.
This gives me such optimism for a future where I'm mostly exempt from pushing toy cars around the floor with false bravado and acting out scenarios of pirates taking over the seaside village. Isn't that the reason parents add children to the family? :)
Yay for siblings! And brothers no less. Mateys indeed (hopefully).
PS. Thanks Uncle Paul and Aunt Ashley for the pirate costume. It's been a hit in our dress up box.
