Well, I finally received the "big pay-off" and what I mean by that is, my twins are FINALLY playing together and wow, they are really making up for lost time. This started at 32 months or 2 1/2.
They have always fought like cats and dogs or simply ignored one another and James dominated my attention and still does, but it's getting much easier for us all.
They have played together before, of course, but never cooperatively - it always ended up in a fight and they never wanted one another to be there. James pretty much wanted me to be his play-buddy and that's it. I wanted to be elsewhere getting something done, but since that wasn't ever possible, I wanted to share my attention with both babies...but it NEVER worked out, ever.
I can't tell you how big a deal this is to me!!
So em, they are really getting quite creative already, even though they haven't had all that many play sessions together. There's usually two play periods per day, the big one seems to be in the evening.
It's really fascinating and crazy to see how fast they have picked things up! I really like astronomy, although I don't talk about it much and I'm not great at it or anything like that, but we do look at the stars and talk about space exploration and the possibility of life on other planets and such. Plus, they watch a cartoon called, Poppy Cat which is based on Cat who has a space ship, LOL.
Anyway, this evening they were running around the house collecting all kinds of things to use as props for their stage. They had a Pampers box which was their space ship and they were talking about putting on their helmets, using oxygen and looking out for asteroids! The counted down, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 11, 4, ...well, you get the idea.
Also, the whole time, they were on a mission to save a mouse, but I can't remember his name. They took a mouse ornament off of the Christmas tree and saved him, hahahaha. (Yep, I allowed it)
It was so cool, how could I not!
Anyway, I had no idea this was how 2 year olds played! It's fantastic!!!!
I can't wait for more :)
