I like to be silly with Becky and we did lots of that last week. We had lots of hugs and kisses, and tickles and giggles. Becky would always say gamely ‘again!’, and we would do it all over again.
There were lots of monkeying around too, as we made monkey faces during story time and when we were trampling through long grass and wadding through a river on our indoor bear hunt. After ‘finding’ the bear, we were not scared and made friends with it. We even lay down to rest with it sleeping between us.
Becky and I played our ‘stuck to the mattress’ game again this week. We played this during story time, when I laid flat on the mattress, as still as possible and say ‘I’m stuck!’. Becky came to ‘rescue’ me by ‘un-sticking’ my arms and legs from the mattress and turn me around. And then I gave her a big hug to thank her. This game of ours always leaves her in chuckles. It is also a good form of distraction when she’s in one of her ‘going to throw a tantrum’ moods.
Becky also built a ‘house’ in our room, using two mattresses. It was a cosy spot, complete with a pillow. She had lots of fun with it, and even invited mummy to join her. Occasionally, the house fell, and she exclaimed ‘Oh no, my house collapse!’, before she proceeded to rebuild it again.
As for Ron Ron, well… Strangely, he loves the word ‘yucky’, and would break into endless chuckles every time anyone says it. Even Becky is catching on and saying that just to hear him laugh. I still can’t figure out why, but I’m glad that just a single word is enough to keep him entertained and laughing. I’ll have to crack my head for more ideas soon though, as he’s quickly growing up.
