He's Our Numero UNO!

Dayton's favorite new past time is playing UNO! I picked it up over the weekend and we've been playing rather often. He prefers to play with just the two of us so that the 'Skip' and 'Reverse' give him more turns! We play with our cards down so that I can coach him. He's got the rules down and we're working on strategy!

We take turns dealing and have talked about etiquette and the rules of engagement when playing games, etc. He always takes inventory of who has what cards after the cards are dealt. Our last hand tonight was by far the most exciting! While he wasn't looking I dealt him all of the wild cards. When he was turning his cards over he couldn't stop giggling! The laughter in his voice and the light in his eyes was priceless! He obviously was unaware of my contrived little plan and I don't feel the least bit guilty as I soaked in his innocent excitement!

On the B Side: I am grateful for the people in our lives who help us to see ourselves more clearly.

PS Clancy, You are always the one who blesses my life!

Thank you for blessing my life tonight and always. It's all you! You're a lifesaver. Just who I needed tonight. Thank you again, my precious angel, Britta.

Cheating at UNO is always a fun past time.
