This morning Girl and Boy Two decided to play Mom and Dad Drive The Car with the mats from the van.
They arranged the mats in the driveway and Boy Two took the position of Dad in the driver's seat, and Girl sat in Mom's passenger seat. They took this very seriously.
Boy put his arms up where the steering wheel would be and started the 'drive'. Girl, apparently mimicking Mom, immediately put on pretend hand lotion.
'Dad' turned the 'car' right, then left, leaning way over to each side like a race car driver. 'Mom' screeched and encouraged 'Dad' that "We're here!" every few seconds.
Eventually, 'Dad' pulled into his desired destination: McDonald's. Sure, why not.
'Mom', of course, put on more hand lotion.
