I’ve developed a pretty nonsensical game with the three-year-old dreamer I watch.  We pretend we are stirring up cake batter or some other sort of recipe…and she has me try it…then she squeals, “there’s a worm in that!!!” and I spit it out dramatically and say a different word she laughs at like, “Balderdash!” or  “Poppycock!  Marlarkey!  Flummery!”
It’s really caught on.  Sometimes before she says hi, she says, “let’s play the worm spitting game!”
