I love playing a lot of different games with the kids. When we’re at the park, its soccer or baseball or basketball. At home, its typically hide & seek, tag, dinosaurs, memory and whatever other board game Scorch has a hankering for.
But Scorch’s latest obsession (which the Bean now shares) may kill me.
The kids want to play puppies all the time. They crawl around on all fours barking and yapping, demanding to be petted. They want to play fetch. They lick us to show affection. Let me say that again- my kids are licking my ankles to get my attention. My job is to sit (or stand) there and give the kids my undivided attention and the occasional scratch behind the ear.
After 10 minutes of this, I’d rather stick myself in the arm with a fork repeatedly. At least when we play Dinosaurs, I get to be the Ankylosaurus and whack the kids with my tail!
Let’s all say a silent prayer this game plays out quickly!
