I'm a pushover


There are some games both Oliver and Lucy enjoy.

The first that springs to mind is to walk up to Daddy when he is stiing on the floor and push him over backwards. I then grab them as I fall onto my back in mock shock, catching them on my chest and nuzzling their necks playfully and making them laugh. Lucy is a particular fan of this right now.

They also enjoy being chased and tickled when caught. The pair of them will chase each other too, usually just before bedtime, which servces nicely to wear them out.

And of course they love to ride on the Merry-Go-Round which has become a permanent fixture in Stockport town centre, or at least it has been there every Saturday afternoon that I have visited. Oliver behaves perfectly. Lucy insists on trying to stand up (depsite being strapped in), thus requiring the proprieter to come over and implore her to sit down, repeatedly. They only get one ride each. Well, maybe two. Hell, go on, one more. What can I say, I'm a pushover.
