Kids are continually going through PHASES.
If they’re not scarily obsessed with garden snails, then they have a new habit of making sucking noises with their noses, or they constantly play an annoying game where they say a made up word that rhymes with the last word of MY sentence.
Most of the time, the phase only goes on for a week or two.
And usually, there’s nothing to worry about. You just roll your eyes, and think, “Good grief, what’s next?”
Well my boys’ current obsession is “BEING A CAT”.
I found them like this one morning. I kid you not, they were curled up like this for AGES. They insisted on walking on all fours, eating from a bowl off the floor, lapping up milk, chasing birds, playing with string, and – most annoyingly – licking themselves all over.
Weird I tell you.
Nonetheless, I’m thankful they’ve never seen a cat hack up hairballs.
