What can be more fun than opening and closing a door? For a toddler, this activity means making loud noises and playing peek-a-boo! For me, it means catching fingers and toes, accompanied by loud cries! Trying to discourage Jude from this game, I place my foot in the door opening without Jude noticing, and tell him the door is broken. He doesn't buy it, so I toss a plush toy over his head and into the next room shouting, "Go get it!" The dog thinks it's for him, pushes past us, and fetches! I then turn on a Raffi CD, sweep Jude off his feet, and we dance and sing our way through three songs. Who knew opening and closing a door could be so exhausting!
Bye for now,
Bubbie and Jude
P.S. What do your grandkids enjoy opening and closing?
