I kept overhearing Will engaging in earnest conversations (by himself), and finally asked who he was talking to.
"Right now I'm just talking to Bing and Balancho, Mommy."
"Of course. And where are they, Will?"
"Oh, they're right here." (holding out his arms towards me)
Apparently Bing and Balancho are his right and left hands, and Ping and Palancho are his left and right feet, respectively. I have no idea where he came up with the names. We are wondering if Balancho and Palancho possibly hail from European descent?
Bing is a bit of an instigator, often ignoring Balancho's requests to leave certain toys alone. Flailing finger fights and clapping can ensue. Ping and Palancho are relatively quiet, unless there is a dance party or light-up shoes involved. They are a lively group, often chatting, sometimes creating mischief, but always amusing.
