Having a good time!
Crying is the main thing.
Crying sometimes--"I'm hungry!"
When they come running...want to hug...want a kiss.
Sounds of excitement...
When you get your first doll at Christmas time. I kept mine all the time. It was a big one with brown curly hair. My grandmother made a dress for it. Her name was Nancy.
I used to have a big doll and she wore baby clothes.
Love...jumping on your lap. You don't get that from OLD FOLKS!
"That's my toy!"
"No, that's my toy!"
(singing) God loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so.
Rock-a-Bye Baby was my favorite!
Ring around the Roses.
Jacks-that was fun! (makes sound while miming shaking dice: quick, quick)
Kicking the can!-run, run, run
Riding bicycles on the sidewalk or riding on the roads where cars were.
Drop the Hankie-You dropped in back, someone had to run around and pick it up, if you did not see it, someone else would get it and they dropped it behind. Nobody knew where that hankie would be!
Hide n Seek--Oh, yes! That was fun.
I think the most important thing a parent can say to a child is "I love you." Let them know they're loved.
God. People. Life.
Humming "Rock-a-Bye Baby."
