Picture goes here when I get home....I'm home
Another adventure in babysitting -
|That ball is really moving!|
He picked up two balls - one smooth green soft plastic, about the size of a tennis ball, the other also green but spiky and a little larger - both were flashing bright, blinking lights. He began pumping his arms, wiggling his hands and then twirling the balls out in front of him up and down round and round furiously.
He suddenly stopped his gyrations and both balls became quiet and unlit. He thrust both darkened, lifeless balls, towards me.
"You jungle, Nannie!"
It was then I realized he had been juggling!
I took the balls dutifully and began juggling as he had - which, by the way, is a much safer way to "jungle" than letting them go flying through the air!
When I "jungled" though, only one ball lit up. It was motion sensitive. The other stayed unlit. I shook it more, thinking it would light up. Nope. Squeeze? No, not that.
So I said, "I don't know how to do this. How do you make this one light up?"
Without a word he simply reached out and gave the ball a good whack with his hand. Immediately it began twinkling with life and light!
He didn't have the words to explain it yet, but he knew what I had asked. He grinned at my surprised look.
And THEN, oh, yes, then I REALLY put on a "jungling" act!
