Action and Cutter

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…
