Sam and my niece Gabby were thick as thieves last week. They had lots of fun playing (and getting into a bit of trouble) together.
This was a common sight:
And here is a snippet of some of the conversations they had while playing with those Barbies they are holding....
Sam -- age 3.
Gabby -- age 5. Who said to me, "Sam and I are the same size, but I'm bigger."
The back seat of the car.
The kids are pretend playing with the Barbies. Gabby takes the lead.
Sam: Can you come out and play?
Gabby: No. I can't play today. I have some things to do. I have to go shopping and then go to the mall. Then I have to go to the doctor because I broke my leg. While I'm at the doctor, I think I'll have a baby, so I'll be too busy to play today.
Sam: Okay, maybe tomorrow.
Sam: My mom and my sister died.
Gabby: Oh, well, I'm about to die too.
Sam: Oh no!
Gabby: Surprise! I'm back alive again! We can play!
And the best of all...
Gabby: OOPS! I accidentally ate your sister! Sorry!
Sam: That's okay.
Seriously, I don't know where they come up with this stuff!
edited to add: I'm linking this back to Fussypants's Grateful Thursday's posts. I'm thankful for kids that keep me laughing!
