1. Peek a boo
2. Rough housing on the bed (laying on the bed while toddler crawls all over you. Minimal movement is the key).
3. Pat-a-cake and all other toddler finger play songs (itsy bitsy spider, bingo, popcorn popping, etc.)
4. Blowing raspberries
5. Joining in the high pitched screams while toddler runs down the hallway.
I was contemplating the games Mr. S and I were playing today. All involved me sitting on the floor in one spot trying to move as little as possible. I could excuse my laziness by the insane hour I wake in the morning or Mr. S unusually short nap which meant no nap for mommy. Or I could ponder this thought: these games are quite popular amongst most toddlers. Is it because toddlers like them or because mothers prefer to sit on their duffs?
