Card Shark!

The other night, the kids were sitting around the table playing cards together. Not wanting to be left out, Li'l Empress scrambled onto Shaggy's lap and insisted in taking over his hand. She proceeded to perfectly mimic what she saw going on around the table, complete with muttering and mumbling under her breath. She had us in hysterics, as her mutterings even mimicked the kids' tones and inflections that she had observed earlier in the game.

It gets especially funny about a minute in to the video, once she mostly forgets that I'm filming her. Enjoy our little card shark - and watch out. That stoic little face can pull a fast one that will leave you wondering what just happened to your winning hand!

I don't know what I liked better - Shaggy or the Lil un! The way she mimics - make sure that they all watch the language - embarrassment is right around the corner with her! :)

hugs - aus and co.

She is so stinking cute!!!! And I love how patient your son was with her. (And the Tongginator used to shake her head back and forth rapidly in that same exact way!)
