    My daughter’s name is Julia too!
    Today I found both my girls playing “Carnivorous Dinosaurs” and sharing a pencil pouch (which was the dead animal). My little one said “Hey! You got the head. that’s the best part!”.
    I just shook my head and went on with my post. LOL
    They do often set up “tents” around the house (which are really sheets draped on furniture). That keeps them busy for hours!

      ROFL – that is awesome Michelle! I love that they are carnivorous!!! lol

      Our girls are obsessed with Dinosaur Train and are always playing dinosaur now too!

      The only problem with the “tents” and “forts” that kids instinctively build is when they leave the mess behind for US to clean up! LOL

        That is too true! Or when my little one sets up “worlds” all over the house and screams if anyone dares to try to clean it up! *sigh*
        But at least they keep busy! LOL

          I know! When my hubby growls about the mess, I remind him that they are KIDS! They need to play and make messes!

    How are you two managing to get blogs done with all the UBP11 excitement?! Plus the children! My heroes! I am addicted to the blogs of you and other UBP11 bloggers – very inspiring! My mind is bustling with new ideas! Thank you!
    PS Pretend play is HUGE with my guys right now. They make up amazing stories all on their own…

      LOL — I know! I haven’t written too much this week, but I needed to get some posts done!

      Isn’t it just fabulous to watch our kids imaginations at work. I love play.

    Yes, my son LOVED playing with a flashlight when he was a preschooler. He’d take it into the dark bathroom or make it shine under his bed or whatever. Great fun!

    My daughter is in love with her daddy’s flashlights. He uses these, expensive, precise creatures for work and when he comes home our daughter grabs one and uses it for a microphone, hoisted in the corner of her tent playhouse for light, or as the doctor’s light as she works on daddy’s “wound of the week”. Usually a cut or two. Makes great rainy day play.
