It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Learning. Or not.

That last post down there? All play is learning?

Overheard this morning. Darcy and Arthur are playing, have been playing, in the kitchen for half an hour. Happy little voices murmur. Well, okay, it’s ARTHUR and Darcy. One little voice murmurs, the other bludgeons. But they’re both happy. Happy together. For half an hour. Play, play, play, play, play.

Then this:

“Are we playin’ school?”
“No, we’re playin’ turtles.”
“Oh.”

So maybe it’s not all learning. At any rate, what two kids in the same game are learning is anyone’s guess. Which can be said of two kids in a classroom, or two adults in a meeting, come to that…

p.s. to Q: or two adults in a church, hey, sweetie?
