Anonotroll in the remote question has me wondering.
It is non-stop goofing around in our house. When DH worked outside the house, his coming home ritual was to make a beeline to wherever DS was, pick him up, and "monster eat" him. DS is too big for that now, and DH works from home, so instead it's any time he comes downstairs, and instead of picking him up, he'll pop around a corner to scare him. Or, when DS hears him coming, he jumps on the couch, hides under the throw, and starts melodramatic screaming "OH NO DON'T GET ME"...at which point the tickle fights start.
If I walk past DS, he knows he's either getting a hug or he's getting the back of his neck tickled. When he walks past me, I know if I have the throw on my chair, it's probably going to get flipped over my head. When we're cooking dinner, we tell him we're putting extra onion (he hates onion) on his, and he knows it's a joke, and exaggerates his distress, throwing himself on the floor lamenting the cruel world. He hijacks the mouse on my computer, I stealth change the channel on him. His morning wake up is either me crawling next to him and exaggerated snoring, or DH bouncing the bed until he moves, usually greeted with swinging pillows, since he's faking, waiting for us to come in (the best part of this is watching him try to fake sleeping and keep a straight face - sometimes we drag out the walk from the door to the bed just to see how long before he loses it).
It's absolutely incomprehensible to me how life would be if the only "play" was playing board games or organized activities. Is our home really so out there?
