Imagination


My 3 year old and her friend were sure quiet this afternoon. I could hear them giggling and laughing, so I let them be. A little while later they came our of her room, dressed up for their “party”. All smiles announcing they would be back, they had a party to go to.  There was no detail left unattended, they added all the accessories, even a glitter “puppy purse”. I grabbed the camera, and they struck a pose!  They were so proud of themselves.

I watched as they went out the back door. Filled a baby stroller full of their handbags and pushed it all over the yard as they “drove” to their party. They must have played for 2 hours. The funniest thing was when they came back inside. Each one started telling all about the party, who was there and all the events that took place. Then they announced what they bought while shopping on their way home. The very next thing my little one says “gosh, I need to go change my clothes, I’m tired”. I wanted to yell from the kitchen ‘put that stuff back up’ but instead, just let it go. We could clean up later, for now I will just let them play. I felt a sense of serenity come over me as I realized not every moment has to be planned, kids need time to use their imaginations.

Imaginations are wonderful. As a mom, I try to encourage my kids to use their imagination and creativity as often as possible. Both of my girls are unique in the things they like or dislike. That makes their imaginations more special.

While the little one was making herself into a princess for her backyard Gala, the oldest was learning to rip stick in the driveway. Poor kid, she took a few beatings but didn’t give up. She’s had that almost a year and hasn’t been able to do it. Another proud mom moment, when she called me in and asked me to watch…she did it!! When I told her how proud she was, she said “Mom, you just can never give up”.

I hope they always have their lively spirits.

About tweenspot

I am like so many moms raising young girls, scared I'm doing the right thing and learning with pure amazement at the same time! I feel like I have become my mother (don't we all)..my favorite phrase is "today things are so different than when I/we grew up". The absolute hysteria in that phrase scares me too. I don't want to be scared. I like to think that as a professional, working, college educated women that I can embrace the world we live in. That's why I have been researching Tweens, what they like, do, what's hot and what's trends are going to cost me a fortune in the future! My little girls are the love of my life. By creating this blog, I want a safe internet place for girls and moms to share. This blog is in the infancy stage, but I have big plans for it. So stay tuned.... Read, enjoy, comment. Visit as often as you'd like. I hope together we can build a community for girls and moms to explore, learn and share with one another.
