Fun with Aunt Did-er-rah

One of Jon’s sisters names is Deidre, pronounced Did-dra. Marielle has yet to say it correctly and says Aunt Did-er-rah every time. She also says “ze-ba-rah”, so it might be something with the “dre” and “bra” that she has trouble with. Either way, she loves Aunt Deidre and I have never seen an adult be so good with kids. She always wants to help us and she will usually offer to take my camera so I can actually be in some pictures. She is wonderful and when sometimes I feel a little bored with the kids, I think, “what does Deidre do with these kids?” I usually re-enact some game she played with them, and it always makes them happy.

I dug through all my pics and found examples of just what Aunt Did-er-rah will do for kids…

She will play the above “game” of going up and down, up and down, up and down, until the kids get tired – not her!! She’ll keep on and on until they ask to stop.

I’m not sure what this one is called, but the girls had a blast. This one, I had to re-enact the next day!

This woman will crawl all over the floor, let the kids crawl on her, play peek-a-boo, play hide and seek, be silly, silly, silly, to no end for these kids. And she loves it.

And she’s Aliza’s godmother – and great at it!! Thanks for everything Aunt/Nanny Deidre! We love you!
