Round and round

with 12 comments

The theme of the moment is going round in circles.  Pudding is really enjoying riding the roller coasters at the theme parks.  She is proving quite the daredevil, and the minute she gets off she asks to do it again.

We’re also going round in circles with conversation.  She has a thing about asking questions she knows the answer to repetitively.  She seems to have a real need to know that my response will always be the same.  Sometimes I get playful to get a conversation with her.  Sometimes, tiredness brings out my petulant side and I refuse to cooperate.

Pudding holds her Ernie (of Sesame Street fame) doll right up in my face.

Pudding: Who’s that?

Me: I’m not telling you who it is Pudding, you know who it is. This is endless.

Pudding: It’s not endless.  It’s Ernie.

How is it that every time I get fed up, she finds a way to pull me back in?  I suppose I’d better just sit back and enjoy the ride, even if going round and round makes me dizzy sometimes.
