This year Gabriel has fully entered the childhood realm of make believe. recently his persona's bounce between being a dog and a pirate.
We have sword fights a lot now, mostly him and his daddy but I jump in occasionally :) can't let the boys have all the fun!
I just love watching him play and act things out, because it wasn't all that long ago, and is still so fresh in my mind, when I was playing make believe.
He calls himself pirate man, and if I ask him to do something, he requests that I say, "pirate, clean up your toys" hehe, too cute!
