One evening, after a particularly exhausting day with my two young daughters, my three-year-old approached me and said, “Mom, I’m pretending you’re dead.”
She wasn’t trying to be morbid… well, any more than usual, at any rate. It was stated in a very matter-of-fact manner, as if she was just informing me of the rules.
She continued, “You lay down on the couch and pretend to be dead.”
Wow, I think this may be my new favorite game!
I think I’ve played this one too with my kids. And thanks for the visit. I’ll add you to my blog surfer so I can keep up with you.
i would love that game. but then i would have to get up to see what they were up to after my demise…
Ha! And what part do they play while you’re on the couch?
They actually got distracted and went off to do something else. I was glad to see they weren’t grieving, as they left me there for dead.
