|Playing under the dining room table with a sibling is the BEST!|
Yes. She had FILLED his crib with every board book in his room and then climbed in after him.
I... don't even know what to say. They were both so happy I left them there while I got dressed. I'm guessing this will not be the last time this happens. Especially when they start sharing a room.
I think part of it is that they both have lives of their own now. She's in school and he's got a whole network of friends/playgroups that don't include her. It took him awhile to gain the confidence to socialize and play without his sister there leading the way for him. But now that he has they both really enjoy their time apart - and have become closer because of it:
|Watching the snowplow in my neighbor's driveway.|
|It was thrilling.|
So if they'd rather play together than bake or craft or whatever under my direction I'm more than fine with it. I waived my "Put one thing away before you take out the next thing" rule - it is a snow day after all - and they are having a blast playing with ALL OF THE TOYS. Together. I love it.
|My house is TRASHED but everyone is happy. Life is good.|
|TOO MUCH CUTE I CAN'T HANDLE IT OMFG....|
