How was y'alls weekend?
I won't bore you with all the details, but let's just say I had the best weekend!
I got to play a REAL scrabble game with my 12 year old friend.
It was a blast.
She and I both had different rules so we met in the middle and it worked well that way.
REAL game boards are so much fun, it was a nice break from my "Words With Friends" obsession.
Poor Aaliyah had no idea that I am the Scrabble Master (only kidding) or that I wasn't going to let her win.
A 12 year old is a pre-teen and I'm pretty sure they are mature enough to lose a game.
Plus, her older sister who is 14 told me that her Mom and Grandmother don't "let" her win, so I shouldn't either.
It was a great Saturday afternoon date.
I suggest all of you find a friend and play a board game at least once a week.
Now, I am not typically a gloater or one who brags, but I know for a fact that my dinner was better than yours last night.
While all of you were eating Nachos and Pizza Slices during the NFL Play-Off Games, I was eating Standing Rib, Collard Greens, Lima Beans, and my Mom's famous Cheesy Mashed Potatoes.
I hate to rub it in, but it was one of those "You had to have been there" moments.
Superb and Divine is all I can say!
Looks like it's going to be the Packers and Steelers on February 6th!
Hey, Did y'all I know I danced in the Halftime Show at the Pro-Bowl in 1997! Good Times!
And my question for today is...
At what age do you stop letting children win games, when is it appropriate to let them learn for themselves?
I sort of felt bad for winning that Scrabble Game, I need to know how you all feel about this!
