“Mommy, how do you know how to do this?!”
She was surprised when I told her that I used to do this when I was a little girl.
Admittedly, I was a little bit rusty… but, God Bless the Internet, we were able to find detailed instructions with illustrations!
We completed the “cat’s cradle” and tried some other tricks. I was hesitant when the instructions read “take string by your teeth…” – what did it just say? Yarn on my teeth? Ewwww. I didn’t need to do the ‘cup and saucer’ trick that badly (yet another example of me getting older), but made the sacrifice to the delight of the girl.
It was a really fun moment this morning… sharing something that I used to do as a little girl with my little girl. We both loved it.
A good way to start the weekend. (way better than cleaning up dog pee because the kids wanted to argue about who had to take him out…but, I digress)
