Between Monster Man and Little Man, I often feel like I live in a fantasy land. Monster Man has always been very imaginative. When he was about two and a half years old, he started believing he was Santa Claus. He didn't just pretend it, but truly believed it. This belief lasted until he was almost six, when he started turning his interests toward super heroes and Star Wars. In the past year, he has started quoting movies out of nowhere, or finding ways to compare current events to things out of movies. Little Man, on the other hand, likes to pretend to be characters out of movies. Sometimes, he uses real props (like his lightsaber when playing Star Wars). Other times, he likes to pretend he has a prop when, in actuality, he doesn't. He'll go around swinging his arms like he has a lightsaber in his hands, making the sounds with his mouth.
My boys keep things interesting in our home.
