The kids have been really enjoying the new things that they got this year. S loves to dress up. He got some cowboy gear and some Captain Jack Sparrow stuff. He's loved to dress up for as long as I can remember. I think he has more dress up stuff then my girls do. He wears costumes to the store, to the park, out to eat, pretty much all the time. He's got a great imagination, and I love watching him play.
The girls have become really good friends in the last couple of months. J always wants to do what M is doing and M is so good about letting her. They play house or school a lot. M is usually the "mom" and you hear J walking around calling mom all the time. I often answer and then she just looks at me and tells me that I'm not the mom she's talking about. They also dance, sing, and color together.
T has been asking and asking for an air soft gun. I was a little weary about this, but DH has been wanting him to have one. A lot of his friends have one, and I know that's not a reason to let your kid have something, but I think he's more responsible than some of the kids that I know who have one. So, I caved. And he loves it. He's been really careful with it and keeps it up when he isn't using it. Him and his dad lay on the floor and shoot at targets. It will be much nicer when they can go shoot outside instead of all over my house. We have little orange and blue b.b.'s all over the place. That's another rule, he has to clean up his own mess. But, he's having fun with it, and I'm actually fine with the fact that he has it.
