Ready? Set!… Gooooo
One of Annie’s favorite games to play is called, “Go.” And you have to say that with a mild Boston-ian accent, draw out the O and give it a tail so that it sounds something like “Gewooo.”
She will back up to my parent’s kitchen wall and run as fast as her little legs will carry her down the kitchen and out the other side into Nanna’s arms, or whomever happens to be sitting in that chair at the dining room table.
She has since found that she can play this game almost anywhere and also adds slight variations now and then. Such as grabbing a favorite toy, passing it on to the receiving person in trade for another favorite, then hiking back to the start position only to announce “Gewooo” again.
Sometimes her ultimate goal is to force someone else to play along, such as a doggie, Mama or Poppa and Nanna. Such was not the case when she found a sheep trail down the middle of our pasture yesterday evening.
She decided that the ones who should be playing along were Hazel and Edna. They did oblige and followed her pleas for them to follow her up the path (have I mentioned how nice it is to have bottle lambs for a baby to play with?)
And though they didn’t exactly chase after her, she didn’t seem to mind. They do run most of the time but being that they’re all babies, they all must understand that there’s certain times of the day where they are in need of some relaxation and some shut-eye.
She seemed to enjoy herself regardless and was just glad to have all of our company and praise for a run well done.
“Ut-oh! Where are the Bee’s?!” Translated – Where are the lambs?!
