Playing House

Photobucket

This is the first summer Andrew & his best bud, Payton, have started playing house.  It's not something he plays with other boys, so I LOVE to listen in during their games.  I played house a lot when I was little with my dolls and my girlfriends.  They don't use dolls for their baby, they use Charlie.

Today, I found them in the backyard where they had set up their "house".  Two fold out chairs in front of a fire pit  --  a play room for Charlie -- a mud pile for Charlie to dig in -- an umbrella & beach chair (I couldn't understand what room that was suppose to be).

Andrew was the Dad and worked as a manager at a Halloween shop. Payton stayed home and took care of the baby.  She had her cell phone (really a phone from inside) to talk to Andrew while he was at work, she cleaned Charlie's hands before she gave him a snack & took him on walks.  It's amazing how naturally nurturing little girls can be, so different from boys.  I think they forgot I was there taking pictures. Well, until I asked for a family portrait that is.
