We have a babysitting group with a couple families in our ward. We each take turns babysitting each other’s kids. We went to another family’s house to babysit a couple weeks ago and they had these adorable dress up dresses. Avery and the two other little girls her age all dressed up and ran around the house for a couple hours. Of course she wasn’t a princess, she was a “banareena” (ballerina for anyone that doesn’t speak the language…).
My Dad used to play a game with all of us kids when we were little. He’s say “open your mouth and close your eyes and I’ll give you a nice surprise!” and we’d have to open our mouths and close our eyes to get a treat. I remember him yelling it as he came up the stairs occasionally at bedtime. So we had some mandarin oranges and I used the rhyme on Avery and this is what Ivan and I saw:
Way to go Ivan for getting that on (digital) film. The even funnier part was that a minute later she decided it was her turn to give the treat, so she said “Open your mouth and close your eyes!” I did. And so did she as she tried to stick and orange slice in my mouth. She missed by about 3 feet.
