One of my favorite things that we do as a family is right after dinner. Sometimes all we can handle is the scramble of cleaning up toys, getting all 3 kiddos bathed, and our bedtime routine, but some nights we manage to squeeze in some special time. This could be simple as reading a book, doing a puzzle, playing a game, a tickle fight or our fun last night which was the question game. We started this game right after Garrett was born to give Parker and Ryann some focused attention. Chris and I would each have one kid on our lap, one of us would ask a question that each child could answer and then we’d smooch the child and then have them switch laps. This little game turned into way more fun than I’d intended as they’d dive over each other on the couch, and jump on us wanting to be asked the question first.
Last night’s questions:
What is your favorite food? What is your favorite animal? @ the zoo? @ the farm? What is your favorite activity with Mommy? with Daddy? and then our favorite responses…
What do you want for Christmas from Santa?
Parker: Nonstop talking Ninja Turtle
Ryann: Dora the Explorer (not sure what exactly but anything will do I’m sure)
What do you want for Christmas from Mommy & Daddy?
Parker: Power Rangers Samurizer Morpher
Yep, she said water and then laughed…she knew she was funny! This girl is hilarious and tries everything in her power to be the center of attention, which she usually succeeds! Parker then says, “My sister is hilarious…I just love her.”
A few minutes turned into a wonderful memory!!
