Holly has really started to blossom in her play, particularly independent play. She used to site and do a puzzle alone or play a game or do art. Mainly though, she wants a partner in crime to play with. However, lately I have seen her sneaking off and enjoying more alone time. She is singing contently in her room while she plays with her Little Pet Shop critters - arranging away, making adjustments and then breaking song to have them talk to each other. So darn cute!
I have to admit it is nice to see! She has a ton of time with her friends. We have a wonderful playgroup whom we meet with weekly, friends we see at various activities and make play dates for her to enjoy. Socially, she is great! But, sometime at home it is hard on her. Hard for her to understand she needs to have some alone time for her imagination to grow. So, to see her blossoming lately in alone play makes my heart smile because I know she is maturing some.... which makes me sad all at the same time! LOL! Oh well, off I go to sneak an earful of her sweet song to the Little Pet Shops!
