I have a very masculine-dominated house… my oldest two are boys (ages 5 and almost 7) and needless to say, my life is loud and very active. Sure I have a little girly girl in there but she’s not quite 2 yet and doesn’t really play “girl stuff” other than carrying around her baby dolls.

Pretend play at my house is (like everything else) loud and very active. Super heroes, guns, bad guys, monsters… no princesses and tea parties quite yet. I embrace it. There is something wonderfully simple about boys’ pretend play.


52 Fridays is a group project undertaken with some wonderful ladies from The Bloom Forum. Take a minute to travel around the blog circle and see what the rest of the group came up with this week. Visit Lindsey Stuckey, Houston Texas Photographer next, and continue on from there.
