This morning Em forced herself to wake up early enough to see Daddy off, and then we cuddled on the sofa for a bit. That is when the silliness began.
First, Em patted my belly to say good morning to the babies. After a few minutes, she scooted off to the corner of the sofa (I was in the middle) and said, “I am too far away, no tickles”.
I am never one to pass up a challenge and funny enough I could reach her still!
She thought this was hysterical!
But then she slapped her leg. We are a no hitting household – no exceptions! So I did the serious face and asked her if she hit her leg.
Em: “Non, mommy, I was just patting, like a flamingo”.
From that minute on, every time I said,”Flamingo”, she would fall over laughing.
I love our silly mornings!
And now I know that flamingos like to pat things. who knew?
