Yesterday, when the little guy and I got back from running some errands, the little guy decided to play.
I was starting the chili for dinner and he said to me, “OK, you be the scener and I will be the action and cutter.”
I asked him what he was talking about.
He said I would be the scener because I was the “guy in the scene” and he would be the action and cutter because he would say “action” and “cut”.
Then he started his directing…
I was to walk to the edge of the cliff (the kitchen rug), open the pretend door, and crawl across the bridge (one line of tiles on the floor).
I told him I wasn’t going to crawl across the bridge, but I would walk across it.
He said, “Action!”
and away we went…
