Time For Take Off!

The kids have been enjoying lots of free time, relaxed time, with no preschool and plenty of summery days when we are in no rush to be anywhere. As such, just after breakfast time now becomes a time for them to run about and do whatever they want to.

Boo has a wonderful imagination and loves making up stories and acting them out. The other day the pair of them played for quite some time at ‘holidays’ The living room became a caravan, which the poor dog was banned from (I had to intervene there and allow him in!) and the kitchen was the aeroplane. They’ve never been on an aeroplane, but maybe because Daddy had to fly to work earlier in the week, it was on Boo’s mind. They took luggage with them and here they are having their snack on it!


It’s so lovely to see them doing things like this. I can see how much my gorgeous Little Man is growing up, as he becomes totally engrossed in the game, too. And they remind me so much of my brother and I when we were young. It fills me with love as I find it all so totally endearing, pride that they get along so well, and excitement for them, as I know how great my childhood was with my little sidekick around!

  1. My brother and I used to be like this, playing pretend games. Love the plane – Jokkmokk, I think…? (the chairs) (we call all our IKEA furniture by name)

      Not sure, but it is Ikea, so you may well be right! Yes, my brother and I loved doing things like this 🙂

  2. I love it when kids get so wrapped up in games like this. My two boys (sometimes including their little sister) create their own complex little worlds, and I’m always impressed by the amount of detail and thought that goes into them.

  3. So cute x I love watching kids play and get really imaginative – it’s so adorable! I love it when my LG sings to herself without realising anyone’s watching too.. makes my here melt a bit! xxx

  4. Ah, that is so precious! What is it with children lining up chairs and pretending they are trains/planes/santa’s sleigh! Piaget would have something to say about it!

  5. It really is wonderful to see what their imagination comes up with! You captured a lovely shot there. I often like to stand an watch my toddler when he’s making an imaginary scene!

  6. This is happening in the house a lot too lately. I would be in the kitchen doing chores or blogging and my son will be in the living room playing, imagining. I would hear different voices of him and conversations. I would always smile when I hear him do this. Would’ve been nice if he’s got a partner in crime but I think he is getting by playing by himself =) #MagicMoments
