I was watching my children do pretend play today.
BoopaLoop - Okay, I'll be the Mommy.
LittleMan - [Pretending to wail]
BoopaLoop - [Walks over to LittleMan with her hands on her hips.] You need to calm down.
LittleMan - [Rolling around on the floor continuing to make high pitched noises.]
BoopaLoop - That does it. Go on time out! [Keeping one hand on her hip with the other pointing to the corner]
LittleMan - [Crawling to the corner while making less irritating noises.]
BoopaLoop - [Following behind him with both hands on her hips.]
LittleMan - Okay, pretend I went on time out and I pointed my sword at you.
BoopaLoop - No, I'm the good Mommy.
LittleMan - Like real Mommy.
BoopaLoop - Yeah.
LittleMan - Oh, I can't attack you.
I guess I find some comfort in that...
