Doggie, Foot & Shoe... The Puppet Show

A couple of nights ago, Rainee decided instead of watching a movie, playing games, cards, scrapping, coloring or reading books... she was going to do a puppet show 'just for mommy'. This was a first, actually... she usually wants me to do all the talking and she moves the puppets... or she tells me what to say, and again I do the talking and she moves the puppets. But this time... she really let her imagination go... she did it all... and of course, I loved it!! Her puppets aren't your normal puppets... they are anything she can put her hands on or in... and this is pretty much how it went... with a cast of Doggie, Foot and Shoe...

This is doggie and this is foot.
"Hi, I'm Doggie. I am nice and sweet and love to get hugs."
"Hi, I'm Foot. I'm smelly, I stink... and love to step on things." THE END

This is doggie and this is foot.
"Hi, I'm Doggie and I can run and jump."
"Hi, I'm Foot. I'm smelly, I love to jump on everything... ants are my favorite thing to step on." THE END

This is doggie, shoe and this is foot.
"Hi, I'm Doggie. I love licks and kisses."
"Hi, I'm Shoe. Have you seen my foot? Because I need to stomp on something."
"Hi, I'm Foot. I don't want to go in the shoe anymore, he is stinkyyyyyyyy! I like to run and play and step on ants. No more shoes for me." THE END

After each little puppet show ended, Rainee would take a bow and of course I would clap. What about you... do you remember your first puppet show? Don't you just love it when one of those immeasurable everyday moments will plop in your lap! They are the gems in life. Enjoy today with or without shoes!

Bryn does puppet shows for me, too! She's even been known to do puppet shows for me while I'm running on the treadmill. It's certainly a great distraction! :-)

Rainee is too cute!
