Imagination Station

We all do it. We sit and watch our little ones and wonder just what is going on in their little minds. We see them thinking and the wheels are turning, and we all want to know what it is that is going on in that little head of theirs.
Since Kaylee can now speak very well, she tells me everything so I dont wonder anymore. My mouth literally drops open at some of the things she says, because sometimes I don't know where she gets it from! But my little Kaylee has an imagination like I've never seen before. She will look into an empty room and actually see something that isn't there. No, she isn't crazy, she is VERY imaginative.
One day, she walked into our living room and became very quiet. Her eyes were as wide as I had ever seen them. She stopped, turned her head to me, and with the most serious face I have ever seen on her, she said " MAMA, Loooooook! It's Dragon Mountain!!! Come into the mountain with me! We can find dragons!". Of course I went on the expedition with my little explorer and we found a big dragon! Thankfully I had Kaylee there with me because I would have never been able to slay a BIG dragon by myself! She was a knight that saved me from the monster and guided me all the way through Dragon Mountain. I don't know what I would have done without her!! :)
Days later, we were in a car!! This does'nt sound out of the ordinary, I know, but what made it extraordinary, was that we never left the couch! We buckled our seatbelts right into the couch cushions and took a trip to Grammy's house! Grammy needed some soup because she was sick and Kaylee made the soup in her new kitchen.So then, we loaded our "car" and took it to our Grammy ! We went through the forest and of course, we watched for "Swiper the Fox" to be sure he would'nt swipe the delicious soup that Kaylee made for her sick Grammy. We successfully made it to Grammy's and back home so Kaylee could enjoy her naptime.
Once in awhile, we forget to use our imagination because the "real" world consumes us. Take the time to sit back and enjoy a couch car ride. I know it will definitely take you back to a time when the world was alot simpler. There were no bills, no worries, no drama, and our biggest concern was fighting off the dragons of Dragon Mountain. Kaylee seems to be happy when she is exploring and imagining. :)
