I just have to tell you all how fun it's been playing "LIFE" with the kids! They even played today by themselves and only needed me to sell them insurance at the beginning and count their money at the end! : ) Very nice! (Of course, Timothy had to be locked out of Mik's room while they played, but he got to watch Dinosaur Train, so he didn't mind too much!) The cutest thing though was how sad Mikaela was the couple of times we played when she didn't have any babies! She was seriously disappointed and jealous of me and Toby... but then, after all of the "baby girl" and "baby boy" and "twins" spots had passed, she landed on "adopt twins" and she literally squealed with delight! Made this mama so happy. : ) I don't know what I loved more... how even in "just a game" she so much wanted to be a mom or how even in "just a game" she was just as thrilled to adopt as she would have been to land on the other baby spots. I just know it was sweet! : ) Unfortunately, I have nothing as sweet to say about the other game they've been playing with each other where they build and then try to catch each other in a mouse trap. ; ) They're playing and having fun (as long as Timothy isn't there to help!) (don't worry... he was taking a nap this time) but it doesn't have quite the same emotional connection as the other game. I wonder why... I hope you all are enjoying whatever you and your family acquired for Christmas and that the end of 2009 is sweet for you too! I've been thinking about all I've learned this year and might make a post of it... I guess we'll all just have to wait and find out! : ) Blessings friends!
