I finally got some video of the girls getting around tonight. I’m really aiming, though, to get footage of our new favorite pastime — one that might be questionably cruel.

Avery’s little hands are just a tad too small to handle this plastic ball we have with one hand. Therefore, she crawls to it, tries to pick it up, and instead pushes it forward….. so she chases after it again. And again. And again. All over the family room.

You be the judge – cruel, or funny (and just good practice)?



  1. Not cruel! My mom taught me to walk using a toy telephone and pulling it in front of me just beyond my reach so i would keep walking to it! She’s going to have crawling down in no time with that method!

  2. I think it’s good parenting. She’s learning because she wants that toy!

  3. I think you ladies are right. It is just an added bonus that it’s fun for us, too! šŸ˜‰
