Delightful Finch used to make an icky sound to communicate her dislike of how things were going. Thankfully, she's moved on. Sadly, Strong Bear picked up on this icky sound and uses it now himself.
Tonight at dinner, we started singing Diego's Theme song to distract Strong Bear from making that sound. When we got to the part about Baby Jaguar, we all took turns saying "meow, meow". (actually it sounds like it has an 'R' in there somewhere, but I wasn't sure where to put it.) Delightful Finch walked into the kitchen and took her turn meowing!
OK, she didn't really sound like a baby jaguar or even a cat, but you could tell she was really trying. She always knew when it was her turn, and piped right up. She's not shy! We all got a kick out of her being part of the family fun. She seemed proud of herself, too. What a cutie!
