6yo has a great imagination, and I was listening to her this morning in the bath, chatting away to herself making up stories. It wasn’t long before I heard her calling me (I was only in the next room and in full view of her).
“Mummy, you have to drink my potion to become a butterfly princess”
“What’s a butterfly princess?” I enquired
“It means you get to be a proper princess and find your one true love”
oooh I thought, my mind wandering……… “Is Daddy your one true love?” 6yo quickly interrupted my dreaming
“Of course he is.”
Heheh, does Angel Mummy answer or Devil Mummy?
“yes darling he is” Angel Mummy obviously won ……. today!
“You have to drink four cups to become a true butterfly princess” she instructed.
Oh OK. Here’s goes…………..
By the end of the bath, I was allowed to have ten husbands, 6yo had six husbands. We were both pretty princesses, me the butterfly, and 6yo was a fairy princess.
It just goes to show you don’t need to spend money to create play opportunities, just search into your imagination.
