But I digress.
My point is that while at Grandmama's, we don't need no stinkin' toys...we play GAMES!
It goes like this. Grandbebe Girl the First asks 'Grandmama, let's play a game.' And I answer, 'Alright, what game shall we play?'
And these are some of the games we have played.
- Hide and Seek
- Save Baby Jesus from the Monster
- Roll On the Floor
- Tickle Monster
Grandbebe Girl is a bit hard pressed to play Hide and Seek really well. She is very excitable about being found. The anticipation gets to be too much, and she leaps from her hidey spots proclaiming her presence.
When I saw her parents arrived on New Years Day, I said to her, 'Your mom and dad are here. Let's hide from them!', to which she readily agreed. We scooched under the desk in the office, moving the desk chair in front of us, ostensibly 'hiding' us, but also allowing us to see them come through the front door (and really.. letting them to see us as well) .
As they entered, Grandbebe Girl Two wondered through the office to the front room...pointing to where we were crouched, as Bebe Momma smilingly asked where was her sister...at which point, Grandbebe Girl The First says...
All part of my plan to be The Fun Grandma!
