Today I happened upon our three-year-old holding her stuffed Grover (from Sesame Street) up in front of her and talking for it. "Hi there! I am Grover!" Came her gravelly imitation voice as she bounced the doll slightly to indicate that it was talking.
Smiling, I asked her, "What are you doing, sweetheart?"
Her reply. "I'm pretending that Grover has batteries!"
