Jillian as a little baby. She still makes that face when she wants me to do something!
My kids are used to me making up voices for different characters. When I read a story, I can get dramatic and silly. These little improvisations are usually restricted to the walls of my home. Now Jillian is my number one audience for my little characterizations. Unlike the boys, Jillian likes me to turn into these characters in public too. She loves when I do baby voices. She is obsessed with her baby dolls. They don't necessarily go everywhere with us. Jillian has decided that they are still with us on our trips, just invisible. Guess who she wants to speak for them? I try to gently persuade her to save the game for home, but a determined four year old is a tough debating opponent. So here I am breaking into little baby one liners as we walk through a store or at the park. Jillian gets such a kick out of me playing this game. Hopefully, anyone who really KNOWS me will not think I'm losing it. A few times, another little girl or boy has joined in on this silly conversation. I think I managed to make my life a mobile romper room now.
