Yesterday my 5 and 4 year old daughters were playing house. I overheard a heated exchange they were having on the stairs. The older one defiantly declared that she was marrying her boyfriend and there was nothing her mother could do about it. I saw the 4 year old "mother" grab her daughters cheeks to physically stop the verbal disobediance and I encouraged them to play a little nicer. The mommy was in the kitchen with tears a few minutes later. Apparently, her daughter SPIT IN HER FACE. Shocking such dramatic play-acting.
