This got me to thinking. There is smoke rising from my brain right now as I begin to think of things I can do with my 2 1/2 year old cutie. And I wanted to share with you how I will adapt to play with my ra.
Cranking up the brainstorming gears, I decided that first I need to get some toys that I also love as this will help encourage me to play with her but will allow my mind to wonder in joy and excitement. And being that times are economically challenging for the best of us, I decided to try and hit some second hand stores and yard sales. I am also blessed in that a very close friend of mine has been hunting for me as well and she brought down the mother load of toys (thank you Cathy)! I have found several toys that I know both Isabel and I will grow to love (I am definitely a kid at heart).
My strategies to make playing easier for me include:
I have prepared our camping chairs and I intend to keep one in their car (our camping chairs can be folded up and carried over a shoulder so I have ready seating when I am tuckered out) and one ready for outside play. Did I hear someone say bubbles and chalk art on our driveway!
And last, I am planning a girls lunch at Chuck-e-Cheese. This place is a self contained play zone, music entertainment, and pizza joint all in one. She has never been to one yet and I am happy to have her do another first with us.
Now from the pics, can you tell which baby doll is mine? And although my children didn't have The Littlest Pet Shop, I am sooooo looking forward to my playtime with them and My Little Pony. And yes, of course, I did get a few Barbie Dolls and even a Ken. And if you are thinking Fisher Price given her age, I was able to get a manger Fisher Price set and a lovely pink dollhouse too. The toilet even flushes on the dollhouse :-)
How do you play with your ra?
For more deep thought....
