It began with a laugh. Marryn got water in her nose from her first swimming excursion, blew it out in a dramatic fashion, and we all laughed. “Ah HA,” said the eight month old brain. “I get a positive reaction when I do this. I think I’ll do it again. And I think I’ll do it again. And how about again in case you missed it? And again…”

Fast forward to today and nary does an hour go by that we don’t see this.

Dubbed the Mad Face.

She loves doing it. She knows we love to see it. So begins the theatricality. We’ve worked up a few routines incorporating the expression. In one scenario I pretend to be scared of the mad face and hide behind a napkin. This is hilarious to the eight month old brain. In another, I do the mad face back to her while shaking my finger and pretending to admonish the mad face. The eight month old brain finds this to be equally amusing.

You’re welcome to stop by anytime to see the mad face. You won’t have to wait very long to see it.

"What you talkin' 'bout Willis?"
