Happening upon a love ritual

Giggles from one corner of the twos classroom...
A little voice, "Do it to me again!"
Another, "No, me, now!"

I see Ms. Karen, with one child at a time, saying softly,

Bar bumper (she touches the child's forehead, lightly)
Eye winker (she touches above the child's eye, lightly)
Nose smeller (she touches the tip of the child's nose, lightly)
Mouth eater (she touches the child's smiling lips, lightly)
Chin chopper (she touches the child's chin, lightly)
Giddy, giddy, giddy! (she moves her tickling fingers under child's chin and up to the ear)

Lots of giggles - from both child and friends.

These lucky children receive lots of love!
Lucky me, to work with Ms. Karen.


  1. Awe! Cute as can be! I can just see the little ones giggling and smiling. :)

  2. Oh-so sweet, & what a great way to show metaphor, even to the twos! It's a nice beginning.

  3. Oooh I remember that one. Love your description of such a loving moment! and you are right - what a wonderful teacher and relationship you witnessed.

  4. Awwwwwww, I never heard that one before. Sweet!
