“Mommy, I made up an imaginary game called Battleships. Do you want to play? There are lots of rules to this game. It’s pretty hard. Are you listening? I hope you are listening. Now this is the ship and you need to knock those posts down with the squishy ball and I will be the guard. Go!”
“Mommy, I have another game we can play. Marbles! I’ll show you. You just gently roll the marbles and if you hit the other person’s block you get a point! See?!”
Being stuck inside all winter (and we’ve still had winter in APRIL!) has led the Roc to come up with his own games. He is happy to play them with anyone, but watch out, the kid is competitive and he doesn’t like to lose. It’s awesome to see him expanding, using his imagination, coming up with things completely on his own.
So proud of him.
