Fly me to the Moon

A child's capacity from imaginative play is boundless.

Jonah and Samuel have devised games called things like Sneak and Throw, Star Stealer, and Astro Boy.  As far as I can tell, they are just creative names (and excuses) for wrestling,

jumping on the beds,

and throwing pillows at each other. 

All of which are allowed in our house (well, in the boys' bedroom), because I am the mother of two active boys and one daredevil of a daughter.  What else are they going to do? 


  1. What fun Tracey.
    They have GOT to get that energy OUT. My big boys (now teens) STILL wrestle and pillow fight. It is CRAZY!

  2. Yup, they do need to get that energy out - as long as nobody gets hurt, it's all good! We used to do a lot of dancing to loud music, which was another excuse to jump on the furniture and wrestle - all in the name of 'dancing'.
