Our little one (who turns 3 in a month) is playing monsters these weeks, where she walks growling through the house swaying her arms, where she runs shrieking through the living room, or tells us to take one of those roles. Today in day care she played being chased by monsters with a friend from a few houses over. I asked her at dinner what those monsters would do if they caught her. “Eat us!” Then I asked her where the monsters come from. “They come out of my head. They’re ‘as if’.”
She’s right of course. Most of all our monsters are like that.
