With Just a Bit of Magic: They're alive! Really, they are!!

They're alive! Really, they are!!

KnuffelsImage via WikipediaIt's that time of week again! Mama Kat's Writers Workshop!! I really think that this is my favorite day of the week!

This week the choice was easy. I decided to write about the things you oddly obsessed about as a child.

When I was a child I had lots of dolls, stuffed animals, Barbies, and what not. But then again what child didn't! They were all in my room where I played with them day in and day out, sometimes alone and sometimes with my friends or my little sister. 

At night things changed though. Everything was different. I truly believed that all of my toys came to life. And I'm pretty sure that Pixar mined my brain for the idea for the Toy Story movies! But that aside, the toys in my room were real, alive, and had a life their own. I would talk to them as if they were real people and cared for them in the same way. I was careful with them... okay, that part may be a bit of the truth being stretched. I was a kid after all!

Because the toys were alive I knew that I had to treat them nicely! They would get upset or I'd hurt their feelings. And then if that happened I'd be upset too.

The imagination of a child is incredibly amazing. We think of anything and everything, we believe almost anything. As a child we want to believe everything. As children we don't discount anything as impossible and why should it be? Given time anything is possible!

To this day I let my children believe what they want, because who am I to crush their dreams & hopes and tell them what they believe isn't real? They're only children once and I saw let them enjoy it while they can.

Just remember your toys can come alive at night too!

Oh yeah! Love that imagination and just think you could have had a blockbuster (or created Barney-ha). :-)

I loved my animals too and often dreamed they were in different spots the next day. It's great to see you letting your kids imagination run wild. With all the videos and games, we need more old school creative thinking.

Great post!

Thank you!!!
My girls have a lot of dress of clothes and things like that and they play with them often. Sometimes they don't actually get dressed and just play dress up all day.
They also play with Barbies, LPS, and dolls often too even though we do have video games and stuff like that!

That is one of the most special things about childhood is the innocence they have. The way in their world they see everything through magical classes.
