This favorite game of Katie's is pretty self-explanatory. It would be really obnoxious if it were not so endearing; she manages to be so careful and considerate about how she knocks me down so I never get kicked in the stomach or elbowed in the cheek, just temporarily pinned to the floor with a great big smooch from my jubilant daughter. It's so worth letting her push me over to see the grin on her face. Plus, it makes me feel special, being The Mama. Nobody else gets to do that. (Of course, nobody else has to, but that's another post.) (Have I mentioned that she's calling me Mama consistently again? Delicious!) All in all, I'd say it's a win-win situation.
What habits or rituals do you find endearing about the children in your life?
