Puzzles, Funny Faces, and Silly Songs.
I have three little people at home. They are all unique, with different personalities, different interests, and different struggles. As they grow and their personalities shine through stronger, it's so funny to see how they are like me (and how they are not like me, but like their Dad, or simply like themselves).
My almost-four-year-old daughter likes to build with blocks, and loves the challenge of putting puzzles together. She is very much like me in in this way, and it's fun to be able to do these things with her! She recently acquired a 100 piece lenticular puzzle- what fun we had putting that together! She's also the master of funny faces. She rarely puts on a natural smile for pictures, but instead sports a really fake looking smile or makes an altogether crazy face. This she gets from her Auntie B.
Another trait that she inherited from dear old Mum (and Dad too) is her crazy-bizarre sense of humor. One of her favorite things to do is to make up songs. When that kid starts singing, one never knows what might come out. Some all-time favorites are, "Old MacDonald had some Pants," and, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, how I Wonder What You had for Breakfast." She recently sat at the dining room table and sang an entire rendition of "Chicken Bells." It was awesome.
