Katie is now reaching an age where she’s finally playing with toys that are fun for me too.
Of course, playing with her before now was fun…it’s magical to watch your child enjoy and learn.
But, let’s be honest. You can only play so many games of Chutes and Ladders.
We’ve been playing with her Lite Brite lately and it’s amazing how many memories it spurs from my childhood.
I love the delayed gratification of Lite Brite…the way the insertion of each colored peg brings you closer to the final, beautiful end.
Seeing her find joy in the same things that I loved as a child is such an amazing experience.
I wrote a post for Babble the other day about all of the toys that I’m hoping that Katie gets for Christmas year so that I’ll have more toys to play with. I’m hoping Santa is nice to us…we’ve been good girls all year!
