High chilly wang wang pills! ~ knee bouncer for cheering up a toddler

This knee bouncer is a special one for cheering up a grumpy baby or toddler. It comes from Orkney and was demonstrated to us by Andrew Appleby, who himself learned it from Joan Robertson. When you have a gurning child to cope with, swing him up into your lap and bounce him to the rhythm.

On 'Pills' you can swing him even higher or bump him down between your knees.

I think you need some ~ I pick her umpus, Mumpus bumpus, Breeches, gaiters, High chilly wang wang PILLS!

I think you need some more…
