When I arrived at their house the three oldest children greeted me at the door asking various questions about my bike ride.
“Did you bring a helmet?”
“What color is it?”
“Where are your boots?”
“Can I see your light?”
“Are you cold?”
Even though my nephews are three and two years old, they understand auntie more than most grownups. “You don’t like cars. You ride your bike.”
We read several books together, one was titled, “Good Night, Good Knight.” After reading it twice we acted out the story. I got to be the good knight and they played the three little dragons (their youngest sister is a little young to be a proper dragon) and hid in their deep, dark cave otherwise known as a large cardboard box.
They have such wonderful imaginations and will happily play make-believe for hours. It is great fun. After they settled down for a nap, I started home.
