A Child's Imagination

April 16, 2010


I've heard that an imagination is a terrible thing to waste. Well, this is true. Since having children I have also learned that a child's imagination can be an exhausting thing to keep up with. At any given moment I go from being "Mommy" to being a character in whatever skit Alyssa happens to be acting out. I have been the mean Queen in Snow White. I give her the bad apple, she takes her bite, falls to the floor "asleep". (I have also been the Prince who's magic hug woke Snow White up.) I have been turned into one (sometimes both) of the mean step-sisters in Cinderella. We've acted out so many "Olivia" episodes. I won't even start describing her "Lizard of Boz" phase. The list goes on and on...





When we go for walks, it's rarely just a walk. We've been running from the Wicked Witch of the West. On more than one time we've had to stop for "red lights" that pop up out of no where. She and I have taken turns being the "Big Bad Wolf" from "Little Red Riding Hood."





It's fun to watch and participate in, but sometimes my energy gives out before she does.
