Playing games with baby and toddler Eamon has never been easy, but it seems like things are starting to improve… He still gets frustrated if he can’t participate, but he is more ……. tolerable …….
Eamon can still make the experience a total disaster but it’s starting to become worth the hassle.
Even with Papa away I got a specific request for the “game with a giraffe and crocodile and zebra”. It’s too early yet for the rules, but Papa would have been VERY proud of both boys on this one.
Getting some skills
If you look at the picture on the card by Eoins left hand, it’s exactly the pattern Conor made. I love this game for how it makes you think so much. Conor also figured out the card for ordering the animals by numbers and pictures much better this time.
Papa has definitely raised a pair of gamers!
Last week Papa got very excited about something. I had to help him set up a payment to Germany and then I would get something “cool”. Something I would not expect but totally love.
Papa has been waiting for this one for a looooong time. Check out his delight and Conor’s growing confidence with speech.
Conor decorated the “wrapping” for Daddy’s birthday present.
Then he helped Papa open his 500th game, Terra Mystica. Lots of pieces!
While Papa was away, these arrived…
Conor has been asking to open them all week…
Papa came home last night, so it was time to see what they contained. Before you ask, Yes, I despise packing peanuts. I absolutely loathe them. We have an agreement that Papa cleans up ALL packing peanuts if Conor is allowed to play in them. Here he is, discovering wind resistance.
Conor loves to help Papa punch out his board games. This was at the weekend.
Mega punching extravaganza
A BIG box came yesterday. The mail man thought it looked fun. Conor concurred. Of course they were both right.
BIG boxes can only mean BIG games…
You might need to find a bigger game Papa…
For the first part of this series, see All I Want for Christmas
Papa and Conor lazed in our new LaZBoy recliner…
One of the most comfortable things ever
Mama made pancakes…
I'm a big boy!
Karen caught Conor and me heading out to the playground in our new mode of transportation and took a photo for us.
Great going there, but it's all uphill on the way back!
Papa stayed home and played a train game with a new gaming friend. Super Sunday all around.
The games fit in our new cabinets! There’s barely an inch of space for any more games, but that’s a Tetris game for another day!

And to the left
The house is really improved with the changes. The basement is benefiting from one set of the old shelves taking back some floor space, and the recycling tubs have gone on the other set of shelves in the garage. More space all around!
