initiate - to cause or facilitate the beginning of: set going
play - a recreational activity especially: the spontaneous activity of children
Mommy Mommy I want to play Ring Around the Rosie, Ashles Ashles (DIVA speak, not a typo) we all fall down is the DIVA's new favorite game. She wants to play with everyone. No one is spared a turn. Not even Boy Wonder.
In 3 days, she taught him how to play Ring Around the Rosie. He laughs and holds hands and turns in a circle. He loves it. He loves it so much that when the DIVA decided she was done playing the other day, he walked up to Big Daddy and said, "I want to play, please."
Late by 4 years, he has hit his developmental milestone of initiating play. Better late then never.
