A deck of cards in this house goes a long way, even the four year old can enjoy a good card game. One week my six year old was being left out as the ten and four year old were playing with their blanket fort in the bedroom and my six year old just wanted to play ninjas or something physical like that.
Since he was so super bummed that no one would play with him, I pulled out the deck of cards ventured downstairs so we were near the other two kids and we played a good game of Go Fish. The cool thing about this game was that even though I totally won Go Fish, my son didn’t freak out. Normally he isn’t so great at losing a game but he took it really well and I got some cute pictures during our game to make into a collage.
The joys of being a parent, it’s more rewarding than any other job I have held.
