When Lilly was three, she collected plastic dinosaurs, and she always had them marching in a parade down the hall, around her bed or up on the side of the bathtub.
Warren has the very same, identical play habits. He LINES THINGS UP...Mostly trains. (Of course -- if a train is not in a perfectly straight line -- there will be trouble. )
|This could be my favorite 2016 Christmas picture of Warren...|
|He has a unique way of playing with the Fisher Price Nativity set...|
|OF COURSE he had to line up all the characters...(the line was long, and included several Santas, some Shopkins, a rubber duckie and a few troll dolls)|
|Last summer, when we went to visit Sue -- she brought out a basket of wooden blocks.|
|Before I could drink a glass of ice tea -- he'd created the perfect single line formation...Warren's building never goes UP -- it always goes in one long line...|
I've been doing biscuits with kids for many years. I have all the fun stuff -- child-sized rolling pins, cookie cutters, biscuit cutters...you name it. Kids love to handle the dough -- they roll it, flatten it with their hands, make ropes, braid it...there are SO MANY POSSIBILITIES.
But this was a new way to play with the dough...
|Warren cut the dough into little pieces, then he rolled them in sprinkles and lined them up.|
|He made a complete circle -- all around the cookie sheet...|
|He was SO PLEASED with himself.|
|When he was done -- he looked at his work and said, "My Mom is really gonna love this."|
