The boys like to play war.
You know, with cards?
I thought everyONE knew WAR but the
neighbor didn't. So? Maybe people don't. Anyway it's
Easy, fast (sometimes you have to stack the deck)
and great for number work. So, we play war.
But no one plays anything, without Meredith!
Sometimes we have to sneak around and hide our game
playing from her.
She watches and wants to be included in everything we do.
She picks up on everything the other kids do and she copys them.
This must be her losing face.
The other night, Mark and Tanner started to play but Tanner
said, 'Dad don't say Awwww! every time I lay down a card.'
We laughed and then Mark realized that he was having
a hard time not saying it every time. We couldn't stop laughing and
Tanner got mad at us because he thought we were laughing
at him. I don't know. Funny story. Worth remembering.
