Scene: two kiddos, playing in the bathroom, after examining their sucker coloured tongues in the mirror.
Boy, pointing with his blue sucker: Wha! Wha! Wha! Mommy, it hurt me!
Girl, pointing back with her red one: Baby! hang on, you can make it!
Boy: Momma! Buddy hurt me. He bite me.
Girl: It will be ok. Mommy is here.
Boy: Ahh! My head fell off!
Girl: Then die! Just go die now. Go put the stick in the garbage, and that's how you die.
Boy: Oh, Ok. ahh! I die now. I go die.
Yes, my kids have discovered imaginative play. I don't ever remember making my suckers into Mommy and Baby characters. And I really don't know if at 4 I would have thought that if my baby sucker was now headless, it must be dead. At least Buddy is willing to go along with it.
