Today I heard Max crying in the other room.
It wasn't the "I'm going to scream until I get my way" type of crying. He was very upset and sounded like he needed his mommy.
I went into the other room to see what was causing such distress for my little guy and what I saw was CJ and Aaron playing "keep away" with Max.
What was it that they were "keeping away" from him? you might ask.
High above Max's head well beyond his reach, his darling brothers were playing keep away with a set of imaginary keys.
Apparently these were Max's keys and CJ had taken them away from him and he was VERY sad.
I stepped in and told CJ to give the keys back to Max.
Do you want to guess what CJ did? He threw the (imaginary) keys across the room where Max couldn't reach them.
I've been through this before. My kids fight over imaginary objects.
But now, I have an idea!
If they have so much fun playing with and fighting over things that don't really exist, then they will love it when they get all of those imaginary presents for Christmas!
Merry Christmas CJ! Here's an imaginary iPod! And look at this really cool imaginary iPhone!
And just "imagine" all of the fun you will have with this imaginary Mac Book!
