Deep thoughts by Molly...

We had a snow day yesterday and today, since school was two hours late for Sam, the twins are home again today.  I decided to take advantage of not having Sam with us, and we decided to go to Target today to pick out a birthday gift for Sam (from the twins and Ben).  I can't believe that he will be seven next week, but that's another story.  So we were pointing out various trucks to Ben, and we saw a bus.  I said "that's a city bus, like we rode at Disney World.  It's for grown ups and kids."  They wanted to get on it to go to Disney World.  Then when I told them that the city bus takes people places that they need to go around town, if they don't have a car to get there, they wanted to know where it went.  I told them that it went places like the mall, to grocery stores, to Target, etc.  Molly asked "And to China?"  I told her no, she'd probably have to fly an airplane there.

Now we are home and Michael and Molly are playing in the basement.  It's always funny to see what they come up with when they are home and playing together.  They are so creative! When Sam is home, it's definitely a different kind of play.  He's definitely the first born, and wants everything to go according to his plan.  When it's just the twins, they just have such an imagination and they just come up with this elaborate world of make believe.  A few minutes ago Michael came out of the basement wanting me to put his Jango Fett costume on.  Then Molly came up.  She wanted her pretty flower tutu tied in a bow on the back.  She said "Mommy, this is my suit of armor."  Then she picked up her wooden bread knife from our Melissa and Doug wooden foods set and said "and THIS is my knife to fight the bad guys."

Clearly Michael couldn't find Jango Fett's helmet!
