Ah, it conjures images of a happy family laughing and playing together. The cozy idea of friendly competition and joyful banter. Yeah, so. Even something as innocuous as ‘Family Game Night’ gets me a little nervous. Yes, nervous. What games could we play as a group? If Sean does not feel included, he is going to make this very difficult. If Ethan does not like the games, he’s just not going to play. If Gavin & Mikey don’t feel like the games are challenging and fun, they will utilize their ‘whining voices’.
I begin the nail-biting business of picking the games. But I did it, I picked ‘Booby Trap’, ‘Sorry Sliders’ and ‘Uno’ and everyone could play.
