This morning, Dylan and Alexa were playing with Lexi's baby dolls, putting them to bed, changing their diapers, throwing them down on the floor--the usual. Lately, they've been experimenting with different family roles: sometimes, Lexi plays Dylan and Dylan plays Mommy, or Dylan plays Daddy and Lexi plays Dylan. Today, they tried a variation. Dylan said, "Lexi, let's play family. I'm Mommy."
To which Lexi replied, "I'm Bob Dylan."
As yet, she hasn't quite developed the role--the game continued on as if she were playing Daddy, or Mommy--but I'm looking forward to seeing where she takes it.
