The Pretend Park

Pre-K 4 is starting soon and today we are scheduled to visit my daughter's classroom. I don't like to leave the apartment a mess so as I was doing dishes, I asked her to start picking up the toys she and her little brother had scattered all over the living room.

"But I'm at the park with my baby doll."

Ok, well if you're at the park with your baby doll, then I guess you can help out when you get back home.

She was completely confused by my lax acceptance of her refusal. And looking at me as if I must have lost my mind, she added, "You know, the pretend park."

Yes honey, I know that you're not really in the park.


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere!

    I love it when kids feel they need to explain to you about make-believe. Like, "Duh, Mommy, it's not real!"

  2. I love it too. I really do wonder what she was thinking of me at that moment.
