She’s a funny girl, my Little Mae. I love the things about her that make her unique as the baby of eight siblings.
No matter how many children you have, you have never seen it all.
I love the new things that I see, which is why I love watching my little girl create play circles.
I don’t know when I first noticed her tendency to circle toys around herself and sit in the middle to play. She has always been a little player, though, gabbing this toy from here and that toy from there.
It can be rather maddening, looking like a toy squatter has taken over the house. Not good news for a mama who likes order and toys to stay in their proper bins.
The circle below is in the front entryway by the stairs. The porch cushions waiting to be put away, the stair basket, and Olaf all came together to form a cozy play place.
She has ideas about what would be perfect to pair with what else for the best play experience.
She has become somewhat of a trend-setter.
I see this as her teacher at school, one of its many perks, as she sets up circles for her friends, pulling toys from here and there, just like at home.
This play circle, composed of Rescue Hero tower and boat, pirate toy island, mini Rescue Hero mountain, and flexible track, is all ready for My Little Ponies to take over the scene. If you use your imagination, you can picture a group of little girls doing just that, while the boys figure out how they will set up their own circle of play.
This isn’t the same circle, but you get a better idea with this little squinch in the middle!
