So, the 4-year-olds yank me into the family room to show me a new game they invented called “The Counting Game.” Here’s what it was. First, put two stuffed animals in the middle of the floor. Then, chase each other around the animals while counting. After the determined number, boy stops, let’s girl pass him, then pushes her as hard as he can, launching her five feet and into the couch. Boy approaches girl and both raise their fists with their thumbs up and swing at each other while yelling, “Thumb fight!” Then, repeat.
My son thinks if he asks for something and follows it with, "my honor," that I will always say yes ... until today.
