I remember when Amara was little. I thought she had the cutest toes any baby had ever had and I loved playing “This Little Piggy” with those toes, especially when she was taking a bubble bath. And I loved tickling the bottom of those feet!
OK, so I still love tickling those feet but now I live in fear of those toes. Amara has the longest toe nails and they are lethal! Especially when she doesn’t have socks on and you are in the midst of a tickle fight, she will get you! When she gets excited she has no control over those feet. They just flail and go every where. I had been teasing her about her toe nails last weekend so when we got around to that bubble bath I made her “Let me look at those toe nails”.
We were playing and now — it was on! I gasped and told her that “those toe nails are so long and so strong you could cut meat with them!” She doesn’t even miss a beat, she comes right back with “Grandma, how dare you say that in front of my toes! You will hurt their feelings.” I am cracking up when I hear Grampy burst out laughing. He was sitting in the office down the hall and had overheard all of this! We have relived this moment over and over since last weekend. Those silly amaraism moments are even better because I can relive them all with him.
