I'd just about recovered from the shock of Sweet M playing fetch with one dog and cuddling another, when she wow'ed me again.
We'd gone to a Fourth of July barbeque at the home of some friends and Sweet M, the first child to arrive, retired to the TV room to watch Cartoon Network. Not surprising — this cartoon retreat — but always just a wee bit disappointing.
Other children arrived and joined her in the TV room and before long their were 3 or 4 of them watching Pokemon.
I'd stopped in to check on them, when, to my astonishment, Sweet M went to the shelf full of games and pulled out a Scrabble-like boardgame called Up Words and set it up. For the next 40 minutes or so, M was playing a board game — a language-based board game at that — with two other kids.
What is going on here? Can this be the Brain Engineering, or is this just a neurological and social growth spurt?
I don't know what to think, but I'm buying that boardgame from Amazon.
