Oh, great! We're going over to the twin bed! Maybe we're going to tickle or play peek-a-boo. Lying down and cuddling? Well, okay, I can do that...[3 seconds later]...alright, that's enough. Mom....MOM! Why are your eyes closed? Maybe she'd like to try my pacifier. Open your mouth, Mom. No? Maybe you'd like it better if I stuck it in your eye. Or nose, maybe? How about your ears? No?
I know, watch this--if I crawl to the head of the bed I can drop my pacifier right down this little crack between the bed and the wall...wait a minute, it's gone! GONE! MOM! I must wail. Mom! You've got to....oh, no wait a minute, THAT is funny. Mom, you are crawling under the bed without opening your eyes--how do you do that?! Oh, I have to laugh out loud at that. Mom, don't you get the humor?
Your eyes are closed again. Mom, c'mon! I wonder how it would feel if I head-butted you? Ow, that smarted a little. Okay, let's try this--I'll kick the wall. Now THAT's a good sound. Look--the pictures rattle. Mom, you have to open your eyes and see this. What? You'er rolling over? Mom, you're missing the fun. Mom....MOM! Okay, that's it--I'm a little irritated now. And I'm going to cry until you roll back over and play with me. [Two minutes of crying].
Wait...what's that? DAD is here? Woo-hoo! Time for a par-tay! Mom...mom, where are you going? Mom? You're LEAVING THE ROOM? I don't like this one bit, and I will cry hysterically to make sure you know how I feel about your walking out of my presence. [4.2 seconds of crying]. Okay, Dad, I'm back. She's got some nerve, doesn't she?
Rocking chair? Okay, I'm game. Hey, watch this--if I lean a l l the way back and turn my head upside down...woo hoo! HEAD RUSH! That's funny. Dad, why aren't you laughing? Okay, we'll rock. Want me to sing a little? Glad to.
[Yawning] Mmmmm....you have to stop this rocking, Dad; it makes me a little tired. Really, stop. [Yawning]. Maybe I'll just put my head down for a quick second on your shoulder. [Eye rubbing]. Mmmmmmm......
