Again...It's ALL in the Details!

The Nogg*n Channel has recently begun showing a tv program called Olivia, based on the book Olivia, about a pig, and her pig family. Olivia is quite a character, always fantasizing about being the "star of the show" and/or "saving the day". She loves to dance and twirl while wearing what she calls her "lucky tights". Well, we know that Kayli cannot watch t.v. without actively participating with props and appropriate attire, as if she herself is the main character. So, recently, Kayli has been insisting on wearing her "rainbow striped lucky tights" with everything, just like Olivia! So the tights were pretty predictable, but the other request took me a while to figure out. A few days ago Kayli wanted me to rubber band her index and middle finger together. I figured she was just experimenting with a rubber band and explained that she couldn't keep it on very long because she might cut off her circulation. She agreed. Then, last night when Olivia came on, she ran to get the rubber band and again asked me to rubber band the two fingers together. Then I watched as she held her hand up in front of the t.v. to match the hand motions of the main character, Olivia. Then it struck me, my detail oriented kid has devised a way to simulate the experience of having pig hooves! I can't stop laughing!!!

Oh my goodness! She has the best imagination ever! Who would have thought to go find a rubber band and create pig hooves! Only Kayli!
