Candyland

From SIL...

Rachel came for Shabbos. It was late Friday night and Ben (3) was using the "I'm hungry" stall tactic to avoid bedtime. He was sitting at the table, chatting away, and not touching his food. I reminded him that he was staying up so he could eat and if he wasn't going to eat than it was time to go to sleep. He reponded, "I'm talking before I eat. You and Auntie Chelli were talking before you ate, so now I am talking before I eat."

Also that night, he and Rachel were planning to play Candyland on Shabbos day. He asked Rachel if she knew how to play and Rachel asked him to teach her. "Everyone picks a color and you move the color. If Imma wins then you will be so happy for her." On Shabbos afternoon, they were about to play when Ben decided he was hungry. He told her "I'm going to eat. You can read the directions meanwhile."

Speaking of being happy when Imma wins; once my friend was over, playing Memory with Sweetie(6). He got a pair, and she said "Yay, good job!" He said "What? You're not supposed to get excited when I get a pair." I heard, and scolded him. "Don't say that! Do you know how hard it was to teach her to be a good sport?" He doesn't have kids yet, but he'll learn...
