The Giggle Monster

Sadie was in a giggly mood today. I don't know what set it off, but it started fairly early in the morning and lasted right up until bedtime, when she started to look as if her hysterical giggling was impeding her walking in such a way that she was rapidly becoming a danger to herself (she kept standing up, walking one step and then dramatically collapsing on the ground in a fit of giggles for no particular reason).

Her little plastic Wonder Pet toys were her partners in crime. She carries them everywhere. They frequently stage attacks on the Fischer Price Little People house and this morning I saw the baby that lives in the house get tossed off the roof. I think that the duck did it. When the baby isn't jumping off the roof, however, Sadie has it driving the tractor. I think she's trying to tell Grumpa that she thinks she's ready to drive his tractor, but that's just a theory.

And now she's passed out, snuggled up to Oatmeal Bear and Mrs. Bunny. After all that playing and giggling, maybe she'll sleep more than two consecutive hours tonight!
