Nurturing Nature

One of the joys of having a daughter is watching how their nurturing side develops. First, there is playing tea and then before you know it they are playing the role of Mommy. Violet has been gradually moving into this role. Her dolls all have names now and she loves them all equally. Each night, before bedtime, Violet will tuck each doll and teddy into a make-shift bed. The recliner, the couch, and even little baskets all become beds for Violet’s babies. And, if there's a blanket around, she covers them all up so that they won't get cold.
