Working for a Living

For not quite 2.5 years old, Soapfi is pretty damn observant and retains huge quantities of information. We usually notice this when she is playing with her dolls and instigates some interesting (and revealing) scenarios and conversations. Her most recent topic of play has been to send her dolls to playschool while she goes to work.

Sometimes she pretends to be Mommy and goes to work on the computer, and other times she pretends to be Daddy and “fixes” her airplanes. Daddy is actually an acoustical engineer for a big airplane manufacturing company out here in the Northwest that I shall not name directly, and he troubleshoots noise problems (and he isn’t in community noise, so it’s not his damn fault the planes are loud when they fly over your house – it’s his fault the air thingies whine and you hear weird whistling sounds from air moving through the cabin). We figured at 2.5 “Daddy fixes airplanes” was close enough without getting into the details.

Turns out she filled in the details all on her own.  We were driving by the worlds largest building by volume, which is just across the street from Daddy’s office, and mentioned that sometimes Daddy works in that building too. And Soapfi pipped up “fixing airplanes”. So Mommy asked “Do you know how Daddy fixes airplanes?”

“Yep – with screwdrivers and batteries”
