December 20: I am thankful that both Hannah and Violet are very good at playing by themselves. Hannah can now create elaborate stories with dolls or Little People, and Violet loves scooting around the playroom from one activity to the next.
I’m not sure what the storyline was here, but I found this set up.
I’m excited to see what will happen when Violet is more mobile and verbal and they can play together more. Right now, Hannah enjoys cooking pretend meals for Violet and always emphasizes that every item is gluten free.
Most other playtime interaction consists of taking each other’s toys and getting mad about it. I made up the phrase, “Girls who take away don’t get to play.” as a warning before timeout for toy stealing. Grrrr. Maybe they’ll grow out of selfishness when I do. ;)
