Me: "How was your day today?"
Me: "Did you do anything fun today?"
Her: YES! Today was FUN!
Me: "What was so fun?"
Her: Muppets porpoise!
Her: We had Muppets porpoise today!
Me: "You had...what?"
Her: Muppets porpoise, Mama! We were in Muppets porpoise today!
Well, I never found out what all that fun was, but I did figure out where it took place: in the multi-purpose room.
I think her name for it is better.
Where does imagination live? In a room with friendly waters and long-held breaths. In a room with infectious giggles and dancing and singing and googly eyes. In a room with primordial wisdom and faith that everyday explorations should be fun and vividly colored. Where does imagination live? In the Muppets-porpoise room.
Plus some real activities, too, of course. But I have no idea what those are.
