And now for something completely different

When my nephew, who is now almost twelve, was about one year old, he developed this awesome talent that we called “using the force,” which involved him holding his hands out in front of his body and tensing his head and neck while making a crazy, wild-eyed expression with his face. It was hilarious and gave us many hours of entertainment. When the Hatchling was born, we hoped she, too, would have the Force within her, but alas, it was not to be. Imagine my delight, then, when the Sprout spontaneously busted out with some Force of her own earlier this week. We managed to catch the tail end of one performance on video. It’s funnier in person, but it’s pretty damned funny whatever the medium. Enjoy.

  1. Hilarious!!! Wonder if she’d teach a workshop so my kids could do that? The best part about this video might be your wonderful laugh at the end. I love your contagious laugh.

  2. OMG, I had totally forgotten about that video of Elliot. When Kristi and Kris first showed us that in Chicago, I laughed so hard my stomach ached–we all did. We repeated it many, many times. What a hilarious memory. 🙂

  3. Sylvia has the force, all right! But in a shy way that is completely her own.
