One of my favorite sounds is my son in his room playing by himself. I love hearing his imagination and him completely entrenched in a make believe world. This morning, he saw me peeking in while I was getting ready in the bathroom, and he said hello, then shut the door to get back to play. I had interrupted something he wanted just for him.
When it was time to go to his gym class, I knocked on his door and let him know it was time to leave. His room was littered with toys- cars lined up, stuffed animals sitting around a board game, Star Wars figures engaged in a fierce battle with dinosaurs on the train table, and a huge block tower. What a beautiful sight of a little boy’s world!
Do your kids play independently?
