How Smart My Kid Is

Tristan and I just spent the last 10 minutes playing, "Catch the Pointer" in which he tries to poke the cursor on the monitor and I move the mouse around and pretend the little pointy hand (cursory thingy) is trying to get away from him.

As far as fun-factor is concerned, this closely competes with the game "Catch the Flashlight Beam" in which I sit on the couch and shine a flashlight around on the walls and furniture and both boys fling themselves around wildly trying to capture the light.

I really should get some of these moments on video. I could be rich.

I love reading about your family!

Heeeyyy! I play those same games with my cat!

Wendy said...

Neen, thank you!

Tati, sorta the same thing except you can kick the cats outside when they start to get on your nerves. :)

I played that game with the guys from T.A. (Technical Assistance) they didn't think it was fun though.. O.o I happened to love it!

(They could control our computer at work in McAlester from 2 1/2 hours away in Tulsa. IF I held the mouse though they couldn't do anything. They were stuck. :o That wasn't nice of me was it? Oops. :D)

Kathy, I would never have guess how mean you are! ;D

Those are great games. And you should absolutely capture them on film. We play the "password" game a lot which thrills Mr M to no end. "It has food in it, it's cold, it uses a lot of electricity.". Refrigerator? YES! Hooray. As you can see, we are easily amused in my full moon house.

Playing charades is great too, but you already new that.

Hi Lawyer Mom! Thanks for input and the new game idea. You can bet I'm going to be coming back to all of you when it's time for us to start taking long road trips!

I did one long trip with The Toddler when he was a year old and when we were about 2 hours out and fully committed I realized what a silly, foolish girl I was. It's taken me nearly a year to get over it and actually be able to think about doing it again!
