I love you when you are playing using your imagination.
I love those moments when you think no-one’s watching and your toys that don’t have batteries talk and move with your help. At the moment I know you love Power Rangers. They’ve been your favourite now for over a year. Before that it was Lightning McQueen. Prior to Cars came Chuggington. Preceding that it was construction vehicles and Thomas the Tank Engine. It won’t be long before Mike, Emily and the rest of the Super Samurai crew take a back seat for the next craze you’ll move onto.
Each one of these ‘fads’ costs Dad and I a small fortune. We could probably have bought our own island off the coast by now if we hadn’t allowed you, and your brother, the indulgences of playing with the latest toys available. It’s all worth it though when I see your imagination at work. Don’t grow up too fast, kiddo! Those action figures will be a distant memory all too soon.
Until then, remember to love your toys to infinity and beyond, like I love you.
