Claire recently learned the Pretending To Drive game while staying with my parents. Apparently it IS a good way to burn a half hour or six. Claire would alternate between demanding more attention from the neighborhood boys (thanks again mom), fiddling with the iPod to find the appropriate Fake Driving playlist (great example Danielle) and getting frustrated with the overwhelming responsibility of it ALL (thanks me).
Danielle did note that Claire will also, occassionally, while making believe she’s a daily commuter lean foward and mutter angrily to herself. Remember those Sinbad commercials? The “That’s MATH staring back at you!” ones? Yeah. I totally get all those references to your behaviors worming their way into your kid’s daily navigation of life.
