my baby has a baby
Three to five year olds relish role playing like no other age group. Pretending to be someone else allows them to see the world from another perspective. The roles that are most familiar to them are the ones that involve their home and family. I carried both of my children in many different infant carriers, but always came back to the sling. My littlest is quite absorbed in being a mama to all of her "babies" and she wanted to have a sling of her own. My daughter thinks that almost anything she desires, I can make. I try to keep up with her whims, as best as I can. We ran off to the sewing room, she picked her fabric, and within 10 minutes she was proudly wearing her baby.
