Simple, Quick Fun

Last week, in an effort to quiet the late afternoon grumpies, I grabbed a pen and drew smiley faces on several of my daughter's fingertips. Then I drew smiley faces on a few of mine to show her how they talk to each other and to her. It was such a huge hit that she has asked for more finger "puppets" several times. And I know now that it's almost guaranteed to calm her down or cheer her up when crankiness or boredom looms. My Mama used to do it with us all the time, and I'm so glad I remembered the trick!
