This is Lucia’s newest facial expression.
The ‘Cat’s Bum’, as I have nicknamed it, is a multi-purpose facial contortion used to convey many different emotions: shock (when she gets a fright), excitement (when the mail drops through the letterbox, or Daddy arrives home) pure happiness (when she hears the opening song to Waybuloo) and regret (when she posts one of my work notebooks down the back of the couch, and knows she’s in trouble.
It’s usually, although not always, accompanied by a loud ‘Ooooooooooooooooooh!!’
Do your little ones have any expressions that make you laugh??
