I was playing with a friend's 4 year old daughter today, and we made the discovery that if she rolled herself up in a blanket, I could pick her up by the head and foot ends of the blanket and swing her back and forth like she was in a hammock. Which delighted her no end.
Thing is, knit blankets are kind of slippery, especially when they have squirming, giggling children in them. So, at one point, I was picking her up and the blanket started to slip out of my grip. So I set the blanket down, saying something like, "My grip's slipping."
She looked up at me with wide eyes and whispered, "You can do it! I believe in you!"
I love little girls. They are the best.This entry was originally posted at http://wshaffer.dreamwidth.org/359541.html. You can comment here or there.
