Hard work and horseplay

Play is the work of childhood.

--- Jean Piaget

I am very glad when Caroline gets to play with children (or just SEE them play) as this helps her to learn HOW to play*.  She got a good lesson when her cousin Gracie came to visit.  May she enjoy all her "lessons" so well!



I should note that many of Caroline's toys, including her much-used kitchen playset, are courtesy of Gracie.

May I add that Caroline might have learned a lesson that I will regret as Gracie beat the stuffing out of me.  Who knew that little girls could be such brutes???


(*) If she learned this only from me, she'd think that play consists of nothing more than blasting zombies on a video game.
