Everyone says babies are different, and I willingly grant that. But I did not know that some babies wake up and play, rather than scream every morning and naptime.
I also did not know some babies actually want to be put down. Peanut never did. He was three before his feet touched the floor. Butter gets to the point where my constant moving and constant talking are too much. He actually wants to be ignored for a few minutes.
I did not know that my love for adult board games would be countered by a raging intolerance for children’s games. But that card games stand the test of four year old play: incessant requests for a game of cards have not gotten old yet. And I have yet to say no to Go Fish. That game rocks.
I also did not know that “Go Fish” can be used outside of the game context. To wit:
Me: Peanut, do you want a sandwich for lunch?
P: Go fish.
P: Go fish
