I love the days that Conner and Micah play together. Nicely. For a long time. And they let Joey join in some, too. (I'm not asking much, am I?!) No, really...I love it. It usually means that there's a big mess, or maybe even several of them. But it also means that I got to spend the day getting some things done and playing with my kids -- instead of being the referee and nurse. (Not playing together well inevitably equals owies.)
Well, today was one of those days. Conner was the king and Micah was the servant. I know, it doesn't sound like a game that would necessarily go over well, but apparently today was a holiday. Micah didn't have to go to work until tomorrow. :)
Conner's castle was in No More. (This is what we call the lion container that holds the stuffed animals. Named by my dad, "No More" is short for "No More Lyin.'") Micah's servant quarters were in the closet. But since today was a holiday, the king had invited the servant into the castle to play.
Joey was the monster.
Lots of times it's really hard to have kiddos this young and close in age. But sometimes it's nice, and when it is it's really fun. I'm so glad that my kids have built in play mates. That they like (most of the time).
