So Matt and Abby stopped by the other evening, and Abby was eager to get in front of the camera. We've all been playing with this idea with her lately about showing different expressions of emotion. It's pretty hilarious watching her pretend to fall off the sofa as if it were a mountain cliff and calling for help "Mommy! Save me!" then Rebecca will rescue her dramatically and smother her like an overprotective mother. It's hilarious.
So, with the help of photobooth, Abby and I did some acting excercises. Here's a 3 yr. old's interpration of some basic emotional states.
"Okay, Abby. Look really, really HAPPY"
"Now look really SAD"
"Now, can you look SURPRISED?"
"How would you look if you were really CONFUSED, like "I don't know?"
"Now let's see you really ANGRY"
"How would you look if you were IN LOVE?"
Eat your heart out, Dakota Fanning.
