Today, we did our school work in the morning, and my friend brought her daughters over (ages 5 and 2) for me to babysit while she went to a luncheon in honor of her husband, a local detective. We were talking when she came back to pick up the girls, and Reece kept interrupting me, saying she wants to play "Memory" with me. It was highly frustrating! I kept telling her I would be right there, and she kept saying, "I want you to play with me!"
Then it sort of dawned on me... she wants me to play with her! That's really cool! Memory is a game that is easily played by yourself, without having anyone to play with. But she was waiting for me to play with her! Wow!
We had a nice time playing... she pouted a few times that I was winning. @@ Of course, I talked way too much! LOL But it was a nice time playing together, when she could have chosen to do it by herself! And also, she initiated playing the game... it was in our game cabinet! Pretty nice!
