Here's a video of some very typical playing and interacting. It starts out with me successfully using a song to distract Gwen from playing with one of only two things in the living room she is not allowed to touch. She enjoys the song so much she even does the actions! Later, I hum the JAWS theme in order to encourage her to find one of her shark puppets (and if your kid doesn't have AT LEAST one shark puppet, well, I think you might need to re-examine your priorities). Then she grabs her purse, waves bye-bye, and leaves.
It's good times.
