We have recently added two new members to the family...and no I did not have twins. Dave and Nita have joined the Holland ranks in the imaginary realm.
Lilly has recently discovered a TV show that she loves called Imagination Movers. There is a guy on the show called Dave (who has ugly hair in my opinion) and a girl named Neena (but Lilly thinks her name is Nita). From this show she has pulled Dave and Nita into our family. They go everywhere with us! At dinner the other night I had to pull a chair up for Dave and Tim had to pull up a chair for Nita. We even incorporate them into our conversations.
Recently her imagination went even deeper. Dave transformed into Old Dave and New Dave. Old Dave is from the Movers show and New Dave is from a movie we watched called Hotel For Dogs. This is the first time I have noticed Lilly showing a little crush on a boy. One of the main characters' name is Dave. Her eyes lit up when she saw him on screen...it was really cute.
So throughout the day Dave and Nita pop in and out of playtime, dinnertime, and bedtime...however they do not sleep with her...they sleep on the trampoline.
Each day it is something new and exciting, and I'm glad to have them as part of the family.
