For Better or For Worse: Pretend Play Tells All

I love eavesdropping on my children playing because it often reveals more than they will ever tell me in conversation. Yesterday, while my husband was at work, I was doing just this. Our 6 year old son and our 3 year old daughter were playing pretend. In this scenario, from what I could gather, our son was the dad, our daughter was the mom, and one of her dolls represented the baby.

What I heard next really made me smile. Our 6 year old was explaining to his sister what the role of the dad would be in their little scenario.

"The baby's Dad is always funny. And he's super-cool too! Oh, and he's very strong."
