Adelle likes to reenact movies and books. She spent a week or so acting out Cinderella. Then starting this past weekend, she began to reenact Kung Fu Panda. She lined up all her figurines in the family room and told me to cover my ears while she shouted “the Furious Five” for the tournament to begin.
Then later on she started “fighting” with Rich and played “nerve attack.” And now, for every meal at the table, she pretends to be Master Shifu and grabs food right off Rich’s or my plate. It’s from the part where Master Shifu trains Po kung fu by using food as motivation. He snatches and eats all the dumplings except for one. At least she is more willing to eat at the table now. We just need to remember to put a little extra on our plate since she eats quite a bit of our food at meals…
