I had forgotten how much I enjoy sitting down and playing a game with my kids. We played several rounds of Wack-a-Mole and Don't Spill the Beans. Ben gets so excited every time he wins, and he's actually a pretty good loser, too (unless he's tired, then all bets are off).
Matthew, at nearly six, still enjoys the little kid games, but is also getting into games that I, as an adult, love. They play a lot of Sorry at his after-school program and just last week I showed up as he was playing his first-ever game of Uno. I love Uno! I'm heading to Target today to buy a deck of Uno cards.
He's also very into Monopoly (not the "kid" version either, he much prefers the adult version). And he's a shark, he buys up everything and wins nearly every time.
I'm looking forward to the day that the boys discover Mouse Trap, Life and Operation, some of my old favorites.
What games do you enjoy playing with your kids?
