Winnah!


What could be more thrilling than spending an afternoon playing boardgames with a 3 year old and a 6 year old?


Unless it is rounding up action figures to replace lost player markers. The 3 year old was into it.... and quickly claimed 'Buzz Lightyear' for his own. The 6 year old (first born...tidy...perfectionist) wasn't so convinced... Afterall, it was a DORA the EXPLORER game, it didn't seem right to be using a motley assortment of other figures! But when it was agreed that he could use the GIANT superman, which easily took up three spaces at a time, we were good to go.


It didn't take long for us to figure out we had been hustled... Up against a couple of Candyland sharks, interjecting mysterious new rules as they loomed close to various perils. And then, fate stepped in.... karma took charge..... all the good juju landed in Grandpop's hand, with one draw of the magic card, sending him straight to the Candy Castle and the end of the game...
The looks of astonishment on those two faces was too good not to enjoy, then some hidden communication between them signaled the attack. Grandpop was pounced on.... in a flurry of arms and legs and exclamations of foul play.

I was just glad the dang game was over
.....good times.........

What a charming little story! Makes me wish I could skip the parenting and go straight to grandparenting! Haha. Of course, parenting is still a long way off for me, and I'll probably put it off as long as I possibly can! Anyway, I like your blog, I got here from Robyn, The Pastorsbride, and I shall return soon. It's creative the way you start every post with a W word. Quite clever. I often wish I could be as clever as other bloggers. I see blogs I like, and I'm like "Oh, I should do that . . . but then I'd be copying." Ah well. I will find my own style soon enough. :) Thanks for the afternoon smile.
