“What’s she feeling, sweetheart?”
I am asking my son to stop and think about the way he’s playing with his baby sister. I can see he doesn’t quite understand what I’m getting at.
“Look at her face, honey.”
She’s struggling to get out of his arms now, and I know a scream is about to erupt…
But he stops tickling her belly and starts to say, “Goo goo, gah gah” in a funny voice instead. He has realised that she wasn’t enjoying their interaction anymore, so changed the game.
