So Last week My husband and I thought it had been a while since we had a family game night.
"Great idea hon" he smiled.
I was really looking forward to it. When you have two teens in the house...One or both are always running in different directions. These days I feel more like a Chauffeur then a Mom.
So it was settled. We would have a nice dinner and settle down for a good old fashioned game night.
I even went out and bought a few new games to add to out collection....
So we finally sat down to have our game night
My 13 year-old-son was like
My seventeen year-old-daughter was like
You get the picture.
"This is boring...!" my daughter would say about the game we chose to play.
"This game is fun" said my Son.
Sooooo we pushed on....
We started with quirkle...
My son got right to it
Stress over SATs and AP tests, and choosing a college are getting to her...
We played two games and guess who won all...
You got it...
This week we had the opportunity to play again.
Everyone was on board.
In an age where so much is going wrong in the world....Home should be a place where we can be ourselves, be joyful and loved, even when we are not that lovable at the moment. ...a place where we reconnect when the whole world seems to be out of sync.
and maybe win a game against a grumpy teen....sweet!
