Like, she will spend literally 10 minutes interacting with her teddy bear, squealing a loud and high-pitched, "Silly Jed! Silly Jed!" before erupting in a fit of giggles. I have no idea why or how Jed is being silly but it's hilarious to watch. She has been doing this every couple of days, too!
Of course we are encouraging this behaviour fully, trying to play along as much as we can. It seems, however, that Little L prefers to interact with toys more than with us when it comes to her pretend play (although we did make "soup" together in her kitchen today). I am very excited to see where her imagination will lead her (and us), although of course the challenge will be to help her differentiate between real and pretend, and remain honest in our dialogue (per our commitment never to lie to her). The other day, she nearly ate clay because we were making "cookies" out of the dough and she couldn't quite separate real from pretend.
I love watching imaginations soar! So much fun!!
What sort of things did your toddler do when his/her imagination began to take wings?
