Gilberto is playing Crazy Eights with Gabi.
Gabi: Mom, Daddy is cheating already! He keeps winning!
Me: Well, sometimes people just win a lot, and it's not cheating. Crazy Eights is more a game of luck than a game of skill, honey.
Gilberto: Yes, I am VERY lucky. Just FULL of luck.
Gabi: Well, then, I'm taking all of your luck right out of you and putting it in me!
And then she won!
Gabi: I won! Mommy, I'm lucky! I'm lucky! I have all that good luck inside me now!
It's so much fun now that Gabi is old enough to play card games. Pretty soon I'll have a chess companion. Or better yet, someone to play Yahtzee with! I get tired of playing Yahtzee by myself all of the time (though it really does help hone one's strategy).
Did I just reveal too much about myself?
Anyway, Gabi and Gilberto are now playing a rousing game of I Have More Luck Than You. Only in our house would an innocent game of Crazy Eights turn into an all out fight between a grown man and a four year old girl over who has more luck than the other.
