Kylie has a new game she likes to play at the playground. She likes to cross this mostly dry ditch and try her best to seem nonchalant.
Then she likes to S-N-E-A-K up towards me
then run close to me, but not within tickle range...
as we both race for base (tree).
Some times I catch her and tickle her. Other times, she makes it to base. As soon as she lets go of the tree, we race back towards the ditch. Only kids can jump the ditch to the kid-zone.
It's a fun game for us both!
Today's base tree had two boys high up in it. This is the face of a tomboy who hasn't yet learned to climb trees.
But a few more games of chase had her smiling again.
