Games We Play

I've often thought of doing a post on all the pretend games that Beezus and Ramona play. But then I figure that all the other kids in the universe play those same sort of imitative pretend play, so what's the big whoop ?

But today's took the cake.

Beezus and Ramona go to kindergarten/pre-school/daycare in a school that's located in an office building. They have planned fire drills twice a year and last week someone pulled the fire alarm (although no real fire) so they got another chance to practice.

This morning, they were playing fire drill. Complete with the "whoop, whoop, whoop," the robotic "please evacuate the building," and the teacher's calm voice reminding the children what to do.

The only difference is that they were running around like crazy to get to their meeting point instead of walking out quietly as they are supposed to.

Ramona even chimed in with her own "leave the building."

Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

Hilarious. Great that they know what to do and even better they are "practicing".
