One of Ali’s favorite original games is to “Play Wee”. Not quite the same as when we play Nintendo Wii, but she thinks it is the same thing and loves it. The rules to Wee are as follows: toddler stands up on the couch and falls onto the back of it and “slides” down, while gleefully yelling “WEEEEEEEEE!!”. All of this with parental referees, of course.
Last night she decided that she would make a slight rules change to Wee, substituted the couch for Daddy’s lap. After a few minutes of her falling backwards onto him, Daddy resorted to adding a pillow into their game of wee. Not sure why. . . :) Anyway, she played Wee for a good 10 minutes or so -it’s amazing how a most of the time a toddler’s attention span is approximately 1.03 seconds but can go on for days when the object of their attention might be causing discomfort or exhaustion to the parent involved.
Here’s a video of the very end of their game. You’ll see at the end why it was deemed the end of their game.
