Sports Camp

Here is Blake at Sports Camp:

Here is the dialogue from my kids playing in the backyard the other day:
Blake: Hey Reade, let's go play Sports Camp outside.
Reade: Okay

They each get a ball and stand on opposite ends of the grass.  Blake walks up to Reade and repositions him.

Blake: Now cry.
Reade: Simply looks at Blake a bit confused.
Blake: Now cry Reade.  Cry because you're sad your mommy has left you.
Reade: Starts to fake whimper.
Blake: You are sad your mom left you.
Reade: Still whimpering.
Blake: (Yells) Now kick the ball.

Andrew from inside - "That is the saddest thing I have ever seen."

I feel awful for actually laughing out loud after I read that!

OMG! That's hilarious. The things kids come up with. Where's Art Linkletter when you need him?

Is this similar to group therapy for preschoolers? They can overcome PTSD (parental abandonment phobia?) by reliving it with their siblings? Will Reade be inoculated against it?

Helen's first re-enactment of preschool was circle time: she lined up her stuffed toys in a semi-circle and read them stories.

Hahahaha. That is the funniest thing I've read all day. I love little kids.

Even funnier was when I verified I wasn't a robot, part of the verification was left on my comment....and it was a swear word. So nice and hilarious.
