When Charlie pulled out the blocks last week, he said "let's play Iggy Peck". Ok! Last week's play mostly consisted of putting the blocks back into the box (I'll never complain about putting toys away, but really, it wasn't all that....fun).
But this week, I was treated to a "tall tower" that took at least 15 minutes to build :-) It was cool, too, that Charlie built it on the floor, so there was never any worry it might topple over.
Also, I'm always really happy that Charlie enjoys putting away the blocks just as much as loves dumping them out and playing with them.
And of course, if you play Iggy Peck, you want to read the book. But Iggy Peck is not on our shelves. We looked at the library (on-line) and couldn't find a copy there either. But it's on the shelf in Charlie's room at home. We got there a few minutes early this afternoon and had time to read the book...
I love that Charlie is playing the character in a book. I have no idea what kind of book play I might've been doing at age 2, but I remember playing Laura (not Mary :-) from Little House on the Prairie in 4th grade.
I'd love to hear - what characters have you played? or did your kids play?
