Creativity in a child is a beautiful thing. I encourage my children to dress-up, have tea parties, go off to make-believe islands, rescue a poor maiden, and to be the heroine or hero in their own story. I believe when you throw a little fantasy into your life you balance the things you can not change.
Today my daughter is a Movie Star from Costume Discounters . She has asked for room service be delivered to her room: Strawberries, Cantaloup, Organic Chicken Salad Sandwich, and Kambucha Tea. She says that Selena Gomez, her favorite celebrity, is coming to visit. They would like an early dinner before they head to their Movie Premier tonight where they play sisters. She requested something light and healthy because she is a little nervous for the upcoming play event.
I love that my daughter is using her imagination and still relating to reality. She gets to hang out with someone she will probably never meet and still wants to eat healthy. I love it! In her imagination she could have asked for Hotdogs, sugary sweets, coke, but she knows how important it is to eat healthy. It is so much a part of her life that it rolls into her imaginary world.
She is wearing a beautiful gown to her Imaginary Movie Premier with Selena Gomez. I would not be surprised if she wears this as Selena Gomez for Halloween this year. I just need to get her a black wig and since Costume Discount carries a wide variety, I know where to pick one up.
