You Can’t Put a Price on Imagination

Maggie’s imagination amazes me. She can go on a bus to the beach to play in the sand and build sand castles. Then she’ll ride her bike home. She blows bubbles and jumps up to pop them, and then goes to the store to get fruits for me. All while sitting in our family room!

Yesterday I was cleaning up after dinner and she asked me to play with her in the family room.

Maggie: Come on, Daddy. Drive to the beach!
 As soon as I am done with the dishes I will come play with you. Play with Mommy right now. You can pretend I’m playing with you.
Maggie: Okay. Look, Mommy! Daddy is driving!

I’m never buying toys or taking her anywhere again! I hope the imaginary dad is a better dad than me.
