Rough Playing

“Away-away!” Yup, those are Toby’s words. It means fight in english. He would do his tumbling act on the bed with the pillows and shout as he if he is really fighting with someone. When you check on him, he is wrestling with pillows and is having a great time. He started this for about a week or two already. At first, I was surprised that he got some toys and played them fighting each other. Then a couple days later, he would sometimes play like this with his sister.

No one taught him how to fight or do this kind of rough playing. I guess it is in his nature and he seems to really like it. Do you have this kind of experience with your little boys too? I would like to hear your stories and how you handled this kind of rough playing…
