There’s nothing quite as beautiful as imaginative play, and what do kids love to do more in play than imitate? Thing 1 and Thing 2 both love our doll carrier (in fact, I’m going to have to buy a second one soon, because they argue about who gets to wear it and for how long and, since Thing 2 doesn’t have a huge vocabulary yet, this results in much shrieking). The LÍLLÉbaby® doll carrier lets kids nurture their stuffed animals and dolls just like Mom and Dad do for them. I’m all for encouraging a little nurturing!
I could easily be annoyed with these pre-dawn antics, but instead, I’m oddly delighted. I love that my little boy gets excited for these trips like nothing else. This is not an expensive trip to some theme park or toy store–it costs nothing more than the gas money to get there. The glamour of the farm is playing in the dirt, building things with Grandpa, and chasing Grandma’s “roombug” (Roomba) around the house. In short: imagination and family. And it’s refreshing and heartwarming that a little boy who can, admittedly, get a bit wrapped up in the consumerist society we live in still finds such joy in these simple things.
So, to my parents I say: Thank you for giving my son the innocent joy and wonder of the free range. And I look forward to his sister discovering the same.
In addition to a beautiful new LILLE, this prize package includes Chompy Chic Chewelry and AppleCheeks cloth diapers. We don’t need more cloth diapers (I know, I know…that’s blasphemy, and I’ve heard great things about AppleCheeks), but I am seriously digging the babywearing accessories at Chompy Chic. Why am I just now learning that this is a thing?! Gah!
Anyway, without further ado (but with a great big Happy Birthday shout out to #miniSP, enter here to win!
