An excerpt from an email I just sent to my sister, who sent Andrew a set of toy dishes and pots and pans for his birthday:
We drove up to the house and I spotted it on the front step and said, “Andrew there’s a package for you from Aunt Tracy on the step!”. Cameron said, “Oooohhh…Aunt Tracy! She gives GREAT presents!!”.
Then the box got ripped open and there was much jumping up and down and yelling. By all four boys. Cameron ran to get his scissors from his pencil box so he could open it up right away.
Now I am receiving a steady stream of imaginary meals…pasta, banana sauce, chocolate clam chowder (this is a dessert, I’m told) …mostly from Ben, who is apparently on imaginary roller skates (Sonic, anyone?).
