kids can be so entertaining. tonight pooka was trying to get an empty juice bottle upstairs--by throwing it. she stood at the foot of the basement stairs and tossed the bottle...straight into the stairs. it would bounce directly back to her, or make big loopy bounces right over her outstretched hands. sometimes, she would try to block it with her body. all of this made for a hilarious 10 minutes. i laughed so hard i had to sit down. kisu went downstairs to get on the bike, but she pleaded for him to 'watch the show'. finally, he asked if she wanted a tip on throwing. on the first throw after that tip, she made it. spoil sport.
