Imaginary dragons and the very real battles

 In MOM, Parenting

I hope everyone has a safe and happy July 4th weekend.

Things around here are pretty nutballs at the moment. We’re two weeks out from our wedding, coming down from jet lag after flying from our home in Switzerland to my mom’s place in the States where we set up camp.

This won’t be a long post. I don’t have that many brain cells. I did have enough, however, to throw together this little meme, because, really, this is just stupid.

Here’s a little bit about a particularly perplexing new dynamic that has crept into playtime. It goes a little something like this:

Sophie: “Let’s take our pet dragon for a walk.”

Olivia: “OK Soapie”

Sophie: “Be very quiet, the baby dragon is sleeping.”

Olivia: (Reaching out, scoops up the thin air in Sophie’s cupped hands)

Sophie: “NOOOOO!!!! Livia!!! That’s MY pet dragon!”

Olivia: “NOOOO Soapie!!! It’s MINES!!!”


What am I supposed to do with that? Tell them to take turns? Good grief.

And with that, have a great weekend all.
