While it all sounds good...we all know that it didn't go well (hence the post). We decide to let the youngest person pick the game and next week, the next youngest and so on. My youngest is freshly 4 years old and doesn't have the best sportsmanship skills. We are working on it. She chooses Mickey's Clubhouse Yahtzee which sounds fun right?
First game goes well..no major problems...second game...not so well. My four year old begins to whine in a voice that I only thought dogs and parents can hear.
"I want to go first."
"You got to go first last time...let's give someone else a turn to go first."
"I don't want to...that's not fair."
"If you are going to cry, then you can go to your room."
"I don't want to go to my room."
"Then stop whining."
Game 3...we pushed it on this one.
"I don't want to only have two Mickey's"
"Well, that is the way the game goes."
Putting her head down on the table to pout (which infuriates me)
"Shall we skip your turn then."
She rolls the dice and the dice go flying all over the table and floor...again infuriates me.
"You need to pick them up."
She picks them up and rolls them again...now she begins to bang the yahtzee cup on the table.
"You need to choose what you are rolling for and please stop banging on the table."
"Well, I am thinking" (with MAJOR attitude and eye roll)
She is four, people...FOUR!!! OMG...roll the freakin dice or I am going to lose it here. Now, I put my head down and proceed to bang my head on the table.
Final roll...all dice go flying...OMG...who's idea was this??
When she puts her playing piece on the board...she purposefully knocks all the other pieces off. AGAIN...I am infuriated.
At the end of the game...she is upset because she got 13 and someone else got 16 and she is adamant that 13 is more than 16 so that she would win.
Glad we implemented that fun filled evening...Good times!!!
