Lil' Wingnut has a new game, a sweet little game. He calls it "Mom and Dad." In this game we pretend he is the dad and I am the mom. Simple enough. Not too much is required of me, other than I be engaged in the game, call him "dear," and repeat the lines he feeds me. Really this game is just him re-enacting scenes from our family life and it is a very telling and fascinating role play.
This is what I've derived from his game. First of all, he gets that his daddy loves me very much. In our game, the dad is very helpful and loving to the mom and is constantly asking her what she would like. Secondly, Lil' Wingnut sees his dad as off and on the go, constantly. He is either on a run, going to the store, heading to work, or flying an airplane somewhere. Yep, dad is one busy guy. Lastly, he sees Wingnut as having a VERY sweet tooth. His runs to the store always result in something sweet to eat; gummy worms, cheesecake, coke, cotton candy, and fruit smoothies. Granted, the gummy worms, coke, and cotton candy are all Lil' Wingnut's personal sweet preferences, it's still hilarious to watch his interpretation of dear ol' Dad .
