Talking With Both Hands

THE BACKSTORY: I’m not even sure how it got to this point, but over time Little E has created a large cast of stuffed animals and puppets that I play with them during the day, sometimes all day, and at night as well.  They’re two favorite friends are Dragon and Peacock, puppets whose personalities are something akin to the typical straight-faced chap and screwball comedy duo, although I wouldn’t necessarily describe Peacock as screwball so much as posh.  Little E pretty much demands their attention at all times during the day and it’s often fun but sometimes I have to take breaks  and vary it up with another character like Mouse or Flamingo. Sometimes I start thinking in their voices, which is kind of weird, I guess that’s how method acting must work…

I imagine one day they’ll do more of this play by themself and I hope I’m giving them a good framework for their own imaginative play in the future.
