This evening when a very tired Little Man had disappeared up to bed, Mr S, Little Miss and I finished the evening playing a game of Happy Families. It is a beautiful version of the game and Little Miss is now at the age when she is able to play it independently. The consequence of which is that we are all very competitive! Normally with Little Man it is a more supportive and encouraging atmosphere but the three of us were definitely in it to win it tonight. I’m delighted to report I was the winner, with Little Miss second and Mr S third. A fun, little triumph, Little Miss is a good loser and we have always tried to stress that’s its the taking part and enjoying an activity which is most important, a lesson which will help our children enjoy life and not be afraid to participate and have a go.
