It was actually a pretty bang up night for them. Monopoly. Muddy Buddy Chex Mix. A Shirley Temple for Casey and Root Beer for Chan. We played for over 3 hours. And they were hilarious! I one point Chan said to me, "Blow it up, Moneymaker." and then held her hand out for a fist bump.
She is starting to be so "tweeny" and I love it!
Casey was all sorts of priss about her properties and her houses. She always cut me a discount when I landed on them though. She's good to her mother like that. At one point, while discussing how she narrowly escaped a $950 rent on one of Chris's properties, she said, "Whew! I was about to sweat my pants!"
I have no idea what that means.
We declared a draw. After 3 hours of playing and no clear cut winner, a draw was the best way to go.
What was Quinn doing during the Monopoly-o-rama? Pretty much this.
For years I have been reading articles about "Digital Natives" and wondering who those digital natives are. The girls certainly weren't. The kids at the schools that I have taught in weren't either. I was seriously starting to think that I was never going to fully understand this term. And then Q came along and now I get it. He's 3 and knows his way around the phone and ipad better than I do. Because he's a native and I am just a foreigner in a foreign land.
I feel okay about this though because I know how to play monopoly and he doesn't.
