This evening before bedtime I whispered in The Princess' ear, "I want to sprinkle you, today... shall we play a game?"
Her face! You would have thought I had told her we were going on a grand adventure! "Yes!" she squealed, and we scurried to the game shelf to choose something she would enjoy.
We had an extra surprise, when we discovered that after years of slightly handicapped playing, we finally have all the game pieces back in the box! My children often use game pieces from store-bought games to create their own games, and the unfortunate side-effect of this creativity is that many of our games are missing pieces. Our closet cleaning efforts this summer have apparently paid off!
