Fia and I were playing THE WORST GAME EVER yesterday, otherwise known as Chutes and Ladders. I have come to really, really dislike this game (I say dislike because once you have children you are not allowed to say the word hate, apparently). I mean who creates a game that gives you a headache upon looking at the board - all those checks, makes it impossible to tell where you are suppose to be going if you are a little kid. Then let's just talk about the THREE SLIDES on the last row of the game, prolonging the torture even further. I have, in the past, done some creative counting so someone would finally win. However, last night it was all fair and square. Fia is 5 and fully capable of the counting and following the arrows and doesn't seem to get distracted by all the checks.
I was winning........in a big way.
I won the first game and was well on my way to winning the second. Score.
She looks over at me and says are you done with your coffee yet? I say no. She takes her mug of smoothie and begins gulping.
I think what on earth is she doing?
She says well at least I can beat you at something.
I have no idea WHERE she gets this competitive streak from.....................
