Fun n' Games


Lily and I have this game. I pretend to be asleep. She gets right up in my face and yells, "DADDY!!!" I act startled and tell her she scared me. She laughs. Repeat 20 times and you get the idea of how this game goes. Well just recently she decided to be the recipient. Here she is in the living room pretending to be asleep on her giant Elmo pillow. This time it only repeated twice. She prefers the role of the scarer rather than the scared.

That's one of the sweetest things in life, and are you not glad you have captured one of the moments with your camera? Few years down the road, looking at these pics and you could actually hear the laughter...

Beautiful photo... and a sweet game. I always enjoyed those kinds of exchanges with my sister's kids. One of the joys of children is that they let our own inner kids come out and play.

I love the photo. Until I read your story I thought she was keeping her eyes closed for something like hide and seek -- and I was right, the toddler's version! Wonderful post. I'm smiling.

Stuff like that is what it's all about, you know? That's what real memories are made of, those little moments in between the big banner events.

Too cute! So much can be read in her expression.

Aw, the story and the shot are both precious!

This DOES look like fun! But it is ALWAYS better to scare Daddy. :)

She is a doll. :)

Great picture! My favorite is when they put their hands over their eyes thinking it causes invisibility! If I can't see you, then you can't see me! Try playing hide and seek with a kid in that mindset!

What a cutie!

Awwwww! What a sweet photo. Funny how kiddos prefer to be the one doing the scaring :)

Oh how I remember that game. We did it too. My husband also "flew" our kids around on their bellies until they came to a mirror and there were LOTS of giggles over that too. But as they grew... well, you can't hold a twelve year old across your fore arm, now can you?

Oh how sweet! I used to pretend to be asleep and my Dad would ask me "are you playin 'possum?" Lovely memories you've brought back for me!!

Cris said...

That's the kind of post that put a smile on our faces. Robert, I am so sorry I missed the last installment over the weekend... I usually don't turn the computer on much during the weekend as I work with computers all the time...
