I think of all the fun Adelaide will have with her Mom and Dad as she grows. She has just begun a journey which will be filled along the way with traditions, songs, games and love. I want to share real quick a fun game I have played with all of my children. They love it.
I hold their hand palm up in mine and while tracing a circle around their palm I say,
“Round and round the garden,
goes the teddy bear.”
Now I take little steps with my fingers up their arm.
“One step, two steps…”
Now I tickle them in the arm pit.
“Tickle you under there!”
The anticipation from the game gets them every time. I hope they sing it to their babies. And Robin…I hope you sing it to yours;-)
