Lucy has started to get into card games beginning with one of my favorites, Uno. We modify the rules a bit (mostly in the areas of how many cards have to get picked up when a Draw-2 or Draw-4 get dropped), but for the most part, she gets it.
CJ, Lucy, and I were playing this past week when something like a red-7 came up. She said, “Oh man, I don’t have a red one” and proceeded to draw one from the deck. She did, in fact, have a red one in her cards, so there was no reason for her to pick up another. Without thinking I said, “Lucy, look at your hand.” She did what any clever 3-year old would do. She looked down at the thing that connects her fingers to her wrist.
Is there a way I can just download the “1001 facts that every person should know” to my kids? No? Dang.
