My younger two girls decided to dress as tourists, complete with hats, purses, and a camera. Interesting, I thought.
Then one gave me a bright smile and said, “We’re robbing a museum! We’ve got our ninja clothes on underneath.” She lifted her pant leg to show me her black pants. “We packed gloves to cover our fingerprints, and I’ve got ninja stars in my purse.”
The younger daughter pulled out a toy phone. “And I’ve got this to communicate with!”
They set toys up around the room to pretend to steal.
While standing together in front of one item, the older observed, “This is two thousand years old.”
Good thing they weren’t standing in front of me.
Oldest daughter, seeing me write this, informs me that she was playing the role of museum guard, and that she kept getting tranquilized. Also, little Joe stole her sword.
I’m glad they’re finding ways to keep themselves entertained, but who’s training them to become thieves?!
