My son is a funny child. We all were in the car. He had to pacifers with him. He put one in his mouth and the other he held.I think he got bored on the way to the market because next thing I know. He puts the spare pacifer on his big toe and tries to take his foot with the pacifer and put it in his mouth. It was the funniest thing.

Lately my 11 month old has really been into crawling away and me catching him. He lights up when he gets caught. He also loves chasing his older brother around with daddy or my help. We will hold his hands and he will "run" after his brother. It is so cute.

To make my little guy who is 17 months old happy I sit on the floor and play with him. Tickle him and make silly faces and voices with him.. He is a happy little guy and just wants to be "FREE" and play.
Now my 11 year old is alot harder.. Sometimes he just wants to cuddle with me on the couch and have my full attention. We usually try to do this at night after the baby is in bed. Other times he wants to actually do something with me. Play a game, do a puzzle, or help cook etc. Then we have days where he just doesn't want to be around me at all lol..
We are moving from NJ to CA and my husband has already been there for about a month so it has been hard to make either of the kids happy some days. I can tell they are just missing Daddy. On those days we try to Video chat on the computer.. We will soon be reunited ( beginning of July) and maybe life can return to normal.

I know this post is outside of the challenge requirements, but I'll add to it anyway.

My son is 5 months old, and for fun, we generally tickle his tummy/sides or neck. We also do "row row row your boat" while sitting on the couch, and rocking back & forth with him. He loves it!

My little guy started walking over the weekend. He has a walking dino that I took outside and my little guy loves walking around the yard with it. He pushes the the buttons on the top that plays music. He dances and then will take a few steps toward me with out the dino. He loves to be outside. It was so cute. I try to get him outside as much as I can.

It doesn't take much to make my daughter happy. She is a pretty happy silly girl. I am a stay at home mom so I spend lots of time with her going for walks, taking her to the park and playdates. She loves to cuddle up with me and take a nap. (only way I seem to be able to get her to nap) I also love to kiss her belly and tickle her when I am changing her diaper or getting her dressed.

My son is a little over 2 months old and he is my first. I don't think it takes much to make him happy. I talk to him a lot to get him to smile. He also likes to go places even though he falls asleep quickly. I take him on my walks with me every other day. We even got a BOB stroller. He also likes to be held a lot. My arms think he likes to be held too much. emoticon

I take my kids on walks and take them to the park. On our route there is about four different parks we stop to play at, all 3 of them enjoy it!

I work full-time, so during the day my hubby is with them until the afternoon. Then we make sure they don't have to go to daycare by having a babysitter.

On Fridays we go to the library, the park, and have a picnic lunch. At nights after I work and after supper, if we don't have baseball or Cubbies--we play in the play room and I attack them. This means I chase them both down and tickle them and pretend like they can't get up. They then in turn get on top of me and smash me while yelling "Attack!" I have been doing this since my oldest was little bitty.

Other than that there are lots of small things I like to do--but that is my favorite one!

With my 10 mo old son, he loves playing where's the baby which basically involves me putting his feeding cloth over his head, him waiting a second and pulling it off with a big smile as if to surprise me.

With my 11 year old stepdaughter it's the little things everyday. Making sure she is involved and that we do things she wants to do. Wii, swim, dance, read. We are celebrating her birthday tomorrow and for the past 5 years I have made what has become her favorite cake (better than mommy's, she likes to remind me :)) So this afternoon she is going to learn how to make it by helping me and she is SO excited! Oh, and yesterday, she was feeling kind of down and blah (she's having a wart problem and is very self conscious) so I offered to take her to get her haircut however she wanted. She was so excited, she looked like what I would look like if I woke up and could fit into a size 6. A haircut! Sometimes it's the small things!

Really, I feel like I do everything to make my family happy, so its hard to pick one thing. Today, we are going for a walk on our Rails to Trails. My 5 year old will ride his bike and my 19 month old will ride in his stroller. They love it and its a great healthy activity for our whole family!

Most days I sit on the floor with my baby girl while I watch TV. She loves to romp and climb on me and bring me books to read to her while I hang out with her. We imitate animal sounds (she's getting good at cat and lion sounds) and she's trying really hard to say "apple".

Take Care,
Kathy

What do you do to make each day a fun and/or happy one for your children?

For example: this morning, I managed to dress my daughter without her waking up. To wake her up, I leaned in to give her smooches on the arms, neck, feet, (dangerous!) and belly until she was giggling too much NOT to wake up--and she was starting the day in a good mood!
