Yesterday afternoon Vincent asked if we could play "Simon Says". I have been trying to teach them how for about a year and I usually reserve it for times when they need a distraction before getting into trouble...waiting in lines, waiting while their sister's diaper is changed, waiting for a meal to be prepared, waiting just about anywhere.
I have been unsuccessful in teaching them how to play correctly, but they are always attentive and quiet for those few minutes.
Obliging V's request and anticipating that I would have to teach them how to play anew, I first refilled my coffee cup.
Simon Says, "put your hands on your heads."
Yes, it is 3:30 and V is still in his P-jams. Don't judge. I'm just keeping it real.
Simon says, "shake your booty."
Maybe I should have wiped the chocolate cookie remnants off Frankie before we started. Oh well.
Simon says, "put your hands on your shoulders."
I love that Franklin is looking out of the corner of his eye to see if Vincent is doing it too.
At this point, V explained to Franklin how to play Simon Says. I was FLOORED! He gets it!!!
Simon says, "cover your eyes."
We also colored pictures of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters in honor of his birthday. V choose the guy from Hop on Pop.
