I can't even blame it on Halloween fever - the girls' room has been one giant staging area for make-believe for over a year now, and it seems we mysteriously acquire more garbs as time goes on. Lately, June won't set foot outside the door unless she is in character - princess, super hero, Indiana Jones in a flowery straw hat with a sash for a whip, it matters not. Winnie is quickly catching on and has become a decked out side-kick to June's every alter-ego.
Normally, I'd loose my cool over finding an entire roll of toilet paper unraveled and strewn about the house, but I just can't help but melt when I find my girls quietly giggling in their room, wrapping each other as mummies, June telling Winnie, "don't trip, walk carefully," and Winnie adding, "OOOO, Junie, you so pooky." Oh, well, I guess love is messy.
