This was one to two minutes of my night tonight while sitting on the floor with Amelia & Caroline as I folded laundry.
As the "Battle of the Rattle" begins please note the following two rules:
1) the girls usually start out side-by-side on the blanket
2) no children were harmed as these two minutes unfolded
*captions are typed above the photo being referenced*
In the top right corner is Caroline wearing the white shirt & bib.
In the lower left corner is Amelia wearing a purple shirt.
The rattle is spotted in the middle!
Caroline rolls over trying to kick Amelia out of the picture.
Caroline says "Oh shoot, I rolled on top of the rattle".
"Let me roll back off of the rattle" Caroline continues.
Amelia (in purple shirt) says, "Maybe I can roll towards the rattle."
Caroline says "I'll step on her to keep her at my feet!"
Caroline's arm flung the rattle more towards her head so she rolls again to get closer.
Oops, Caroline quickly changes her mind and returns to her back grabbing the rattle
while Amelia plans her attack.
"Ooh, this is my chance!" says Amelia as Caroline flings the rattle across her body.
"Wait, let me take out the competition first!" struggles Amelia who is now on the top of the picture.
"Ya, take that!"
"What do you say now?? Huh?!?"
(I repeat that no children were harmed during this battle)
The taste of sweet success.
Amelia might be littler, but she is mighty.
That is an honest representation of how their playing usually goes. They smack each other, roll on top of each other, kick each other, and never seem to hardly flinch. It's pretty funny to watch.
And really amazing to experience.
