I’ve always had a reverence for playing in pretend. Honestly, I get a sensation out of playing pretend with kids that is really hard to describe. It’s kind of like a cross between goose-bumps and a “hum”/vibration feeling I get in my neck, and the top of my head, when I’m really bought in to playing pretend with kids. It’s one of my favorite sensations in all of life.
At any rate… I’m sure you can tell where this is going. I get lots of great opportunities for playing in make-believe with two very imaginative girls.
Tonight’s was particularly cute. Abbey heard me discussing my diet/nutrition goals I made for the year, and I noticed she started listening really intently. After she heard a few of the challenges I was having (getting “hangry”, headaches, old habits, etc…), she started asking really pointed questions… as if she was a nutritionist, diagnosing and trouble-shooting with me: “how often does this happen?” “Mmm-hmm”… “and what have you tried so far?”, “mm-hmmm…, of course”. This continues for some 5-8 minutes. Sure enough, my “prescription” is above.
What can i say? I’m a sucker for this stuff.
