mostly dylan

Dylan did really well at the play. She sat there for 2.5 hours without a peep, came home, and asked to watch it again. We explained the unfortunate difference between reality and video. She still wants to go live there. I would take her to see it again, but we're going out of town this weekend and then it will be gone.

The skating was also great. She was really gliding around by the end and can't wait to go again. It's like we live in a real city, with this cool skating rink in the middle of downtown.


Have I mentioned the Preschool Teacher persona? She is strict, but loose with the stickers. She's also with us more hours of the day than not. It's fun because she re-creates school to the smallest detail in the living room, then bosses all her friends (real names, other children not present) around for hours. This requires little supervision or participation from us. She is incapable of reading a book at this point without showing the whole room the pictures and licking a finger to turn the page. The down side is she disciplines us right back when we talk to her. It is...irritating, to say the least.

In that vein, here is a series I call "Baby brother's first role as prop in an elaborate make believe scenario."
