Small Pleasures

One good thing about the big kids being sick is having more time with the little ones. More knee rides, more peek-a-boo, more board books, more finger painting, and more of this:

X marks the spot (draw x on child's palm)
A circle and a dot (draw on palm)
Thunder (tap palm rapidly)
Lightning (draw a zigzag going up the arm)
And Darkness very frightening (cover child's eyes briefly with your hand)
(gales of laughter and "Again! Again!")

I don't know where that came from. I'm pretty sure we didn't make it up. Does anyone else do this?

Wow, that's putting a positive spin on things! Not sure where the game came from though, sorry...

We did something similar growing up - I think the ending was different. And I'm pretty sure by "different" I mean "meaner".

Happy Valentine's Day! xoxo to all!
