Do you know what is SO much fun? (And, trust me....I had no idea it was this much fun or I would have done it a long time ago...) Here's what you've got to do: sit in the middle of the living room while you play Go Fish according to the rules remembered by your Kindergartner (fair warning: you WILL be compelled to look online for the true rules) and put your hamster in her hamster-ball to roll around between the four of you as you play cards.
It was really great.
Although I've NEVER been a fan of games, I guess there is something to be said about family game night. Makes me look forward to my kids' excitement when they find out that the Easter Bunny will be bringing them the Sponge Bob Square Pants version of Operation. In my family of origin, our standard game was Uno...any other suggestions out there? Please feel free to make them. I'm sort of picky about games but if there are some good suggestions, I'd love to know.
