Boys at Play

The scene: Playroom floor.

The toys: A collection of wooden blocks; little people, animals, and accessories; trio blocks, fashioned into rocket ships; diggers and dozers; two "guys" with a jeep.

The story: The rocket ships have to fly fast.  And be repaired.  And he had to move the dump truck so the other guy could mow underneath.

These two are 20 months apart.  They share a bedroom now and are together all day, every day.  Some days I wonder if it's too much- maybe they need some alone time?  But since they've started sharing a bedroom (it's been about a month or two), their daytime play together has increased and become more mature.  The stories are elaborate, and they easily get lost in their own world for an hour or more at a time.  They hardly noticed me taking these photos of them today!  I hope they are the best of friends for the rest of their lives.

Wonderful set of pictures! Not only that, but the sensitivity to notice the scene and then carefully describe it... very nice.

They probably will be lifelong friends!... and at least one of them is bound to take care of poor old mom in her old age...
