This Morning I discovered that my daughter playing in her area and I crept softly up the hallway to listen and see. Now was clearly Tea Party Day at FromRussia and of her dolls and bears were hanging about in a circle patiently awaiting their beer to be stuffed and their feign cake to be served fanciful plates. It was a movie. And all the time Sophie maintained a chatter that (it took me a second or two to realize) comprised the voices of every one of her toy buddies.
Has had a moment like that – are not they magical? However, as I thought about it after, I wondered where all tea-party make-believe came out. My mom bought my daughter a children’s tea collection, and I must admit I rolled my eyes a bit when I saw it. Let her play’
I could not remember if I played with tea parties when I was Long, meticulous, endless tea celebrations, she informs me with a weary grin. She has been here before – her very own parties as a youngster, enduring my tea parties because a mom, and Sophie’s as a grandma. Grandmothers, I understand again, are such as angels walking the ground. .
So it is possible Sophie’s inherent tea party hosting abilities Are inherited – skills finessed and elegant through generations of women in my loved ones, playing real life using a pair of miniature flowery tea cups and a bottomless sugar dish. It is possible… However, I wonder if she’s heard how to play this match by viewing me? And I need to let that idea go when it happens. And the dialogue is quickly paced, filled with gossip and very loudly. There is not one of this polite dialogue that Sophie imitates, “Big Ted, do you enjoy three four or sugars?” Sophie most certainly is not replicating her elders.
It seems somewhat mad but, I have come to Conclude that it is almost as though the true tea collection itself has attracted this type of drama from my daughter – and possibly that is the ideal answer. We are all aware that little women want a more socialized and intricate kind of drama than boys and a children’s tea collection supplies her four year-old mind with the ideal gear and chance.
In hindsight I am Glad I did not hear my inner-cynic and set the gender stereotyping Tea put away from the cupboard, since it’s Sophie’s most favorite toy At this time. And my heart almost overflows when I see her play it. Along with all of the other advantages, there is also a Gorgeous innocence To match such as tea parties – and that is more valuable than gold.
