You Just Can't Win Against A Six-Year-Old


Tonight Riley begged me to play a game called Landscapes with him. It's a game where you build castles and have ogres and things that fire discs and rocks. Believe me, it was the last thing I wanted to do. But Ry knows that if he whines enough I'll give in, and I did.

So we build our cities and he puts this disc into this slingshot looking thing. He fires and misses. My turn. I fire and his one of his ogres. Ha ha! I'm winning, so I think. Until he stands his guy back up and tells me he has a medic. He fires again and hits one of my guys. Apparently, I do not have medics. So, being the competitive sort that I am, I pick up a rock and throw it, hard, at his castle. It falls over. Ha ha!

Now he tells me he has engineers!

How do you win against that?!

How adorable. The times I say no to my son on playing with him are the times I know I'll regret when he no longer asks me,or he is too old for games. I know i have to stop and play. I'm so glad you did this too.
