Two days ago we taught Alanna the song "Ring Around the Rosie" and she LOVES it!! I think her favorite part was that her daddy and I would hold her hands and then we would all fall down together. The first several times were really cute and and she had the biggest smile. Around the 15th time or so, we were starting to get worn out. (But it's really hard to say no when she grabs your finger and says "Mommy, up. More, pwwwwease!!!")
Eventually, I looked Alanna right in the eyes and held up one finger and told her "Alanna, we will do it one more time and then we are all done." She said "ok mommy." So we get to the "ashes ashes, all fall down" part and we all fall down and laugh and then Alanna crawls over to me, looks me straight in the eyes, with one little finger up, and says "Mommy, one more time...PWEASE?" Oh boy.
After another million times of playing, we finally pooped out. Alanna decided to play by her self. She'd sing "winga winga winga winga, DOWN!!" then go and look at herself in the mirror and hold up one finger and say "one more time."
We haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
