Emma: I am in the living room. playing.
Mom really meant to take part in House of Horrors week, but then she started feeling bad again with her allergies and didn't get any of it done. We have been going along as usual, except for the time I jumped Emma when Mom was playing with her.
Karen Jo: What was up with that, anyway? I was flying Da Bird for Emma and I was flying it over your head, too. You could have joined in at any time. Instead, you suddenly pounced on Emma, pummeled her a bit, then left. Emma let out a high-pitched eeeee! but didn't really yell for help. I couldn't tell if you were playing or being a bit mean. I think you were being a bit mean.
I got a bit jealous of all the attention you were giving Emma, so I stopped the game. I let you play with her tonight.
Karen Jo: It was a one time thing, but the next time I flew Da Bird for Emma, she kept looking to see if you were watching. When she spotted you, she stopped playing. Luckily, she seems to have forgotten all about it now.
I am just playing with her now. I grabbed her when she was running down the hall, but didn't hit her. She just turned around and ran the other way.
Emma: That didn't scare me. I knew you were just playing. I think it's fun when you chase me. I think it's great that Mom keeps the toy baskets on the floor. I am picking out my own toys to play with now. Mom saw me pull out a soft ball and chase it all over the living room.
Karen Jo: I love to see you playing with the toys. What's really wonderful is that you like the feather toys that Herman shows no interest in at all. Now all the toys are getting played with by somecat.
I am not playing much with the toys. I would rather play with Emma. We are still working out what's fun for us. I love hiding and waiting for her to come by so I can jump out at her. We are both on the bed with Mom most nights and mornings now. Mom has fun getting into a position where she can pay attention to both of us at the same time.
