"You can do anything with children if you only play with them."
Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898), German Statesman
Last night my daughter and I had a slumber party together in her room. We took four dishpans of craft materials into her room so that we would have plenty to do. She had the idea to use an Altoids tin to make a trundle bed. She said, "I want the baby to have a trundle bed, so she can be close by her mommy. Like the beds that Laura and Mary had."
It was so sweet to watch her create something from a book we'd read together. (No worries that currently there's a puppy and a chicken in it. It's just part of her imagination at work. Later on there was a tiger in the trundle bed.)
