Ricki has a horrific habit of making faces... a snarling, ogre-like “mask”.... when anyone looks at her. Now if she would do this to adults who stare, or even older children, I would understand. But she will snarl an angry “NU, what do you want?” at even the tinest tots who only HAPPENED to glance in her direction.
Needless to say, her draculan countenance (if she could, I am sure she would add fangs....) does little to endear her to the toddlers in question, and they invariably go crying to their mothers.
I don’t think at this rate that Ricki is going to make a good “self-advocate”.
