Linguini and a game of Simon Says



The three year old grandson visited the other day, arriving just before dinnertime.
We sat him down to a plate of linguini with chicken in a four cheese sauce, hoping he'd be able to handle those long noodles.
As you can see, he did pretty well with his first attempts, and as soon as several photos were taken he learned to twirl it on his fork!

I wasn't feeling well, and not up to our usual more physical after-dinner games, so we decided to try and teach the little guy how to play Simon Says.
If you're unfamiliar with the game, or just plain forgotten how to play, a player becomes Simon, who names simple tasks to accomplish prefacing each task with the words Simon Says. If Simon can trick you into performing a task without saying Simon Says, you're out of the game.
Grandpa was the first Simon, and the grandson picked up the game pretty quickly.
Grandma was next, and pretty soon the grandson got his turn at being Simon.
He begins with "Simon Says- put on your hat." We did so.
Next came "Simon Says- throw your hat on the ground," which we also did as requested.
Finally came "Simon Says- get naked!"
While we're laughing, the grandson pulls down his pants, points his little finger at us while exclaiming "Grandma, grandpa- you didn't do what Simon Says! You lose!"

We're going to have to find a different game to play next time...

My God, that child is beyond adorable! That picture is just too cute (love the little chubby baby fingers!) and his need for nekkidness *must* run in the family, huh? Little Miss Nekkid Sunbather/Gardener :-)

Yea, I'm sure you and Mr. SB finished the game later ;)

He is a scrumptious baby, that one. (Not Mr. SB; the little guy.)

susie-
We surely didn't finish "the game" that night since our little guest spent the night... and his bed is temporarily placed in our room.

The grandson really is scrumptious. I'm getting in all the hugs and kisses I can, since I can see he's growing up fast and won't want grandma kissing on him too much longer.

Looks like Mini-SB had a great time! Four cheese linguini - Grams, you're going to spoil the boy!

I'm going to have to try that Simon says trick myself...

Well I have to spoil the boy... it's my job!

I'm thinking the Simon Says trick could be quite fun at a party! After a few drinks it might get pretty nasty.
