The girl insisted we have a family game night. The boy and I reluctantly left our solo quiet time to join her only to discover she’d chosen the one banned game in the house – Candyland. Banned 10 years ago because it’s the most boring game on earth.
Who would have thought that at 14 and 18 they’d still find it fun. Although it’s a totally different kind of game with teenage vocabulary.
Then we moved to the ultimate family favorite – uno – and took turns kicking butt.
I didn’t know I needed that, but I really did. It was fun to be silly and play games with my two favorite people.
