Practicing tricks: face graffiti

I got some of the "I can't DO IT!!"-s the other day, and after saying "Serenity now!" a few times in my head, I saw a sheet of stickers.  New rule - for every part played correctly, she got a sticker on her face.  It was so random and unexpected that she started giggling and I knew I had won.  S-U-C-C-E-S-S, that's the way you spell success!!  Woohoo!!

It reminded me a bit of Becca's awesome bead idea, because I was kind of arbitrary about when I decided she'd played enough right to earn a sticker.  It kept her on her toes and out of the crabby zone.

Funny thing - the sticker I put on her chin was of a planet, and as I quickly put it on there and tried to move on, she had to know which on it was.  "It has rings," I said impatiently.  "So it has to be Saturn."

"But Neptune has rings too!  Are you sure it's Saturn??" She asked, and after pulling it off and analyzing it for a bit, declared - "It's blue, so it's definitely Neptune."  It's so fun having a 4-year old resident genius!
