Little Kid Silliness

Dani and Georgina were back at the library again tonight for the first time in a while. Dani was happy to see me, but one of the first things she said was "I got the [birthday] card you sent me -- you didn't send no money!" Sheesh... kids these days. :-) And then later on she told me she was going to give me a slice of the peach Georgina was cutting up for her. She told me to close my eyes and hold out my hands, so I did. I waited like that for a minute, then heard from the other room, "Hee hee. I ate it all." Sigh. But she hadn't and she gave me some later. Other than that, she was her usual nice, amusing little self. She wanted to learn to type as fast as I do, so she started out by doing one word at a time and lining up her fingers over all the letters in that word at once and then pushing them as fast as she could. "Sandwich" turned out to be a tricky one. Then she gave up, saying her hands were too small. So we did some of her math homework. (Well, when I say "we" I really mean that she did the homework while I made the magic finger-wiggling movements at her head that made her think of the right answers. Apparently this was required.) When that was done, and the actual students had left the computer lab, she got to be spun on a swivel chair for a while as a reward. I think we might have overdone it, though. Between insisting on almost constant dizziness and occasional tickling episodes, she was starting to get a bit nauseous by the end. But I think she'll be alright. :-)
