Sometimes it is hard to tell just who is teaching whom. I was doing eyes, ears, nose & mouth with four year-old David today as we were waiting for lunch. He touched his mouth, eyes and ears okay, but when I said nose he just looked at me and started to lean close. I backed up and repeated, “Nose.”
He frowned a bit and moved his face toward mine again. I backed away. “Nose, David,” I said. Then I wiggled my nose. (Yep, I can wiggle my nose. Not like Samantha on Bewitched though. Mine wiggles up and down like a bunny.)
David looked at my nose and his eyes opened wide. A huge grin split his face and he laughed out loud. I said, “Nose, David. Nose.”
He stepped forward and reached out very slowly and put his hands on either side of my face. I sat still and waited to see what else he would do. He stared at my nose and scrunched up his face, trying to make his nose wiggle. I wiggled my nose, then I said, “Nose, David.”
He leaned forward, touched his nose to mine, and and gently moved his head back-and-forth. A huge smile lit his face. “Noos!” he said.
Can I keep him?
