Their new favorite game is chase. Typically Kate puts on the puppy dog ears and tail and then goes in search of someone to fill the role of the kitty cat. She'll carry the cat ears and tail around saying "Let's chase each udder guys!" It is adorable.
Sarah is happy to oblige and wear the kitty cat stuff, but she is just as willing to chase everyone around without them.
The good things about the new favorite game are that they do all thoroughly enjoy chasing each other around and lots and lots of giggling takes place, and as a bonus they get out tons of energy this way.
The downside is that the game usually doesn't end until someone, or two someones, end up slamming into something or each other while running and getting hurt. So far we've only sustained minimal injuries and had hours of enjoyment, so I'd say it's working out just fine. I know I say this with every stage we hit around here, but so far this is the very best one. Even through all of the whining, fighting, and general toddler independence asserting, I'm loving
almost every minute of it!
