We have a stool something like this..not the same colors but you get the idea right?
It is the perfect height for Buzz to sit down on and hence is a favorite of hers to play around. Another favorite toy of hers to play with is the disks of the Microwave idli maker.
So over the weekend Buzz sat on the stool playing with the disks, while I sat on the couch reading a book. I would look up every now and then to see what she was up to.
– Her legs are hanging while she sits and plays
– Her legs are folded underneath her
– All but one disk are on the floor. She is holding the last one. Half sitting half crouching
– She is sitting on the disk on the stool with her legs out wide
I hear her cry out and look up to see her on her stomach with the disk between her and the stool..hand and legs out wild like she is swimming. And she is screaming out loud ofcourse. I keep sitting to see if she can figure it out. In between screams and huffs of frustration she somehow manages to scramble down on her belly head first. I am all set to cheer her on for getting off without my help when she gets up, full of energy. Starts to come running towards me. Stop for a second between her run. Hits the stool (all indigent). Runs to my arms.
Don’t know where she learned the hitting bit but I was in splits. The expressions on her face were priceless. Now I guess I should start teaching her ‘Hitting is bad’. Oh well 🙂
