Finding calm in the chaos

stuff my kid says

We've been playing a lot of Guess Who? at our house lately. If you're not familiar with the game, it's sort of like 20 Questions where each player tries to guess the other player's mystery person through process of elimination.

It sounds pretty basic...unless you're two years old.

Natalie Doris has a hard time with the game. Loves the game, but doesn't really understand how to come up with questions to ask her brother. Her favorite question is "Is your's a girl with a pink hat and glasses?" (That's Claire, for your information, who happens to be her favorite person on the board).

So, when I usually join her team and we come up with questions together so Sam doesn't pull his hair out in frustration.

Unfortunately, Sam feels a bit left out with this arrangement and often wants me to play on his team as well. Finally, after an afternoon of playing Guess Who?, we decided that when Joe got home, Joe could help ND and I could finally be on Sam's team.

Everyone was fine with this arrangment...except Natalie Doris. She's a mama's girl.

She was about to throw a huge fit when I heard Sam talking sweetly to her:
"ND--You'll like having Dad on your team 'cause Dad is so much smarter than Mom."

Hhmmm....
