But, fun as it is to share germs with your siblings, BB's favorite form of entertainment these days is a game that she and S have. Daddy makes a stack of colored plastic cups, takes a little firefighter figurine and climbs the stack (along with the requisite "doot-doot-doot" climbing noises), and then BB gleefully knocks the whole thing over. (As you might imagine, she doesn't always wait until the firewoman is at the top.)
I didn't even know this game existed until this evening, when S happened to mention it. Apparently, she and S have been doing it for days. This now explains, I think, why BB dug out that specific firewoman figurine and brought it to me several times today. She wanted me to play the game! Now that I think about it, she did have that expectant "Entertain Me, Mommy!" look about her. Though that expression on her face is hardly a rarity around here these days.
Other entertaining news: BJ has started making up songs. On the way home from story time at the library today, it was:
When he was finished, he informed me quite seriously that the song was called "Bye-bye Good." And that it was "By 'BJ'." Actually, he used his full first and last name, which tickled me extremely. It always cracks me up when he says his last name, because his toddlerese pronunciation gives it a remarkable resemblance to an 80's band that shall not be named.
Good bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye-bye
Good bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye-bye...
