Children in books

Homework was done but Nine-year-old couldn’t watch her usual fun shows as Grandpa was monopolizing the TV with his boring news about some hearing. So what can a Nine-year-old do when she has nothing to do and it’s not bedtime yet?

Play of course. Except that Grandma doesn’t know many games. One wonders how Grandma graduated from school and college without learning some simple games as Money-Money and Master Brain. So be it. Nine-year-old took a few minutes to teach Grandma, not thoroughly, because this way, Nine-year-old could beat Grandma so easily.

Then we played Monopoly. Now, that was annoying because Grandma obviously knew this game and started winning. Honestly, the game became boring. Can you enjoy a game when you are losing to your old Grandma? Okay, so Nine-year-old took a break to put her PJs and then to eat an ice cream, but Grandma kept winning. How boring! That when Nine-year-old decided she was tired and stopped the game before we knew who won.

Now you know why I love writing about children and babies, and where I found my inspiration.

    I found it a lot easier to write about kids after I had kids.

    When our girls were very young, we played Missing Match Ups. It’s a memory game. Then we taught them 21. It teaches them math. After that it was Chess. We did the same with the grandchildren. When they complained that we didn’t have games like other families, I’d hand them a piece of poster board, markers, and construction paper. They knew where the dice were. They would be busy for hours thinking up the most elaborate games and creating the “board”. When they were done, they’d want me to play. Who could resist trying out a new game?

    I imagine your grandchildren would vote you ‘Grandmother of the year’, Mona. 🙂
