One of the (many) advantages of a live in Nanny (what I tell my friends I have!! haha!!) is someone plays games with the kids on a regular basis. I have intentions to play games but it doesn't happen very often at all. Luckily for the kids Grandma is a great sport and plays many games with them.
I *hear* that by playing games kids will learn sportsmanship. I'd say some of mine (Jake!) still have a bit of learning to do. To be fair, it's not just Jake. It's Jake on a regular basis but anyone of them might lose it depending on the day! So we keep at it - and eventually they'll learn to have fun and keep their cool even when they don't win - right? I hope so!!
P.S. - Notice the Halloween garland at the top of the picture? I want credit for being a *good* Mom this year and getting out the Halloween decor. Owning it isn't quite enough if you don't use it... drat!
