As I have said before Rosie loves being outside with family in the afternoons. The sun shines on the back deck and she surly enjoys the warmth. Typically Rosie likes sitting up in the rungs of the deck umbrella, where she is up high and can see all. "feeling safe as well, I am sure"
However, she is not in the sun or getting the natural vitamin D she needs. If I leave the umbrella down so she can run on the deck table, she keeps starring upward looking for the umbrella and screaming her dislikes.
On this particular day I did not give in, instead leaving the umbrella down and perched Rosie on the back of a deck chair. Rosie clearly not happy at first, ended up inventing a new game and we both had a ball.
I had popped popcorn for the kids earlier in the day and the empty dish was left on the deck table. This dish ended up being of great interest for Rosie filled with un-popped seeds. As Rosie was perched on the back of the deck chair, I tossed an un-popped seed in the seat of the chair just to see what she would do. As the seed rolled around in the chair Rosie scurried down inspecting the seed then tossed down on the deck. Rosie began laughing and indeed wanted more fun. We played this game together until the seeds ran out. Rosie insisted on inspecting the dish repeating the word "seed" and laughing like crazy, ending with throwing the plastic dish down as well. Goofy Bird!
