When Boys Play With Stuffed Animals

As I was doing some chores this evening, I noticed both boys were snuggled in Nels's bed, reading books with the lights out.

About twenty minutes later, they reported back to me.

"Mom, we put our stuffed animals to bed!"

They read to them.
They sang to them (quickly, because one of the animals kept sneezing.)
They said prayers with them.
Then the bear ate the dog.

Sweet dreams!

Oh my gosh, that is so funny! It's amazing to see the way that children interpret and re-enact adult behavior and how their imaginations give life to inanimate objects like stuffed animals. Just precious.
