Charlotte is in this imitative phase that is adorable or annoying depending on who you are. She decided to be Mike this morning & opened a book to pretend it was the computer, had a little cup of pretend coffee & went outside to have a pretend cigarette. Fiona the Feral was startled at this change. This is adorable.
But it's annoying if you're Miranda & were already having a successful princess game by making a flight of royal stairs to your royal counter throne. Charlotte is a show stealer but not on purpose. She's passionate & wholly involved in whatever world she's created. I think most of our conflict (& she is the main conflict initiator) stems from her running into reality.
