It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
E and I are still trying to figure out what to do on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays when her sisters are at school. Pretty much every day we go for a walk, and we read a million and two books, but she’s not quite at the full on playing age, and doesn’t always participate in “free play!”
We’ve worked on many of the obvious body parts (head, ears, eyes, mouth, nose, belly, hands, toes etc), but I thought it would be fun to teach her some other ones, too. For example, we’ve done elbow, fingers (which I have her do jazz fingers for), and teeth and tongue! When I ask where her tongue is, she always sticks it out. And, yes, I always laugh, but it’s too cute. Sometimes I join her.
When I ask her where her teeth are, she gives the biggest cheesiest smile with her teeth clenched together. I wasn’t able to capture it, but this was the tale-end and it totally cracked me up, too!
I’m trying to figure out some other ones to teach her. I guess we could work on shoulders and knees and then we could do the whole song. Yep, that’s what I’ll do next. Although, my goal for this week is to get a picture with my big girls, too because they’ve been hiding lately!
