Kids and games...

Today we were playing a game and Colette asked me,

"Mrs. Elaine, do you know what the inside of your house looked like when you were a kid?" 

Me: "Yes, I do."

Colette: "Did I ever see it?"

Me: "No, it is in a different state"

Colette: "Darn.  Why did I even ask?"


Colette: "Did you have toys when you were a kid?"

Me: "Yes, I had toys."

Colette: "What were they made out of?" "Wood?"

Me:  "Some were?" "Why do you want to know?"

Colette: "I'm just thinking!"


So here is what we were playing!  COOTIE!  I loved this game when I was a kid. I have sweet memories of playing with my cousin Rosie.
 Yes, games have changed so much over the years, but we can still have fun with an easy game like Cootie. 
Even when a six year old beats you.

We played with a new edition but I found my old one and we compared them.

Is there a favorite game you played as a child?

It was mostly hop scotch and jump roaps during the summer days. In the winter, it was Shoots and Ladders, Candyland, and Old Maid!
