Our baby Sueanne is becoming more like a boy. Why? Because she's got this fixation with our TV and DVD remote control. And you know lar, the TV and DVD remote control is a MAN's domain. ;)
So there I go, flip on the TV and DVD and then place them remote controls on the coffee table. In a few moments, baby Sueanne will crawl slowly to the coffee table, *kreek chiiit kreek chiit* goes her legs screetching the tile floor. Upon reaching the coffee table, she will stand up on her feet and reach for the remote controls. Grabbing either one of the remote controls, she will treat them like yummylicious food and put them in her mouth and gnaw gnaw gnaw with her new sharp teeth.
Being the loving daddy i will take the remote away from her. Sueanne will then give me a bewildered stare, followed by frowning face, squinting eyes and an irritating "eerrrmmm wear eerrrmmm wear" until I give it back to her. These days, the remotes are either hidden or placed right in the middle of the coffee table where she can't reach them. Muahahahar!
One evening, as she was trying to grab the unreachable remote controls on the coffee table, I decided to distract her from her fixation with the remote controls. Between her and the remote controls, I placed a bright purple 6" Barney plush doll. Sueanne paused for a moment. Then she grabbed Barney by his leg and in one swift tennis back swing, flung poor Barney onto the floor. She looked at me and laughed "heh heh heh heh" showing her two lower front teeth. Honest!
I quickly took Barney up and placed in between her and the remote. Same thing happened. Grabbed by his legs, Barney was flung onto the floor followed by a mischievious laughter "heh heh heh heh". Goodness gracious! Sueanne is becoming more like her daddy!
I repeated that scene no less than 10 times, and Sueanne was really having loads of fun. When Mrs B came to the living area, I let her see our little girl's "Barney flinging scene". Soon, she forgot about the remote control.
I have only one regret. I didn't record that scene on my digicam! Arrgghhhh! Nevermind, will try to do that tonight... "huh huh huh" ;)
