Portrait of Play 2017, Week 37

I know the sibling relationships will be harder to navigate in the years to come, but I feel pretty lucky that they all play so well together for the time being. I recognize that in large part this is because Charlotte does not retaliate when Winnie tries to use force to get what she wants. That’s a smart move on Charlotte’s part because yesterday she said, “Mom, I think Winnie might actually be stronger than me.” I told her that I didn’t think she was yet…but it could happen. Since Roland’s birth, Winnie has actually been pretty great about seeing him as a cute little brother rather than her competition for my lap space. That’s been more of a struggle since we left her with her grandparents for 5 days though (you can read about why on my blog at Pregnancy and Newborn). The play room has already become cluttered with doll stuff, and it has been their house where they take turns being the baby. Usually Chuck is the mommy and Winnie is the baby, but they have started switching roles lately. Once Winnie was calling for her mommy (Chuck), and I asked her if Chuck was a good mommy. She said yes. Then I asked if I was a good mommy, and she said no. I laughed. It was stupid for me to have asked.
