Today, Aeryn got everything out to play at once. Our living room is an absolute mess. But the stuff she was coming out with was so awesome!


There was an elaborate imagined plot about a bathroom trip the animals were trying to make, but the couldn’t find the toilet and had to adventure to find the policeman (lying under the easel!) to help give them directions and get them over various obstacles. They spoke to each other in different voices. It was involved and epic and lasted an absolute age. I just love watching her imaginary play.


Her easel is still showing some of her drawings, too, which have taken a huge leap in the last week or so. Here we have a baby on the left and two women on the right. She gave the women hair with yellow chalk, but left the baby bald. She very conciously drew heads and bodies and various features like eyes.


It’s like a switch has flipped recently and she’s suddenly realised she can use marks to represent things!



Jen enjoys reading (endlessly, everything), creative writing, playing RPGs, buying from local markets, drinking coffee, drinking tea, craft projects, baking, gentle parenting, home educating and speaking in third person. She blogs about issues and ideas surrounding education, parenting, feminism, craft and various other interesting tidbits. What a wonderful word, tidbits.
