Making The World A Bitter Place

For a Good Time, Call Anyone but Us

Now that we have five kids we can do this:

THAG and MIGGTHA’S FAMILY

B

I

N

G

O

Newborn

Two-year-old

Four-year-old

Seven-year-old

Ten-year-old

Spit up all over Mommy’s clothes

Abuse Daddy’s computer just to get attention

Refuse to eat food that I specifically requested

Pour way too much cereal and milk

Complain about lack of clean laundry I was supposed to put away myself

React with tantrum to diaper change

Climb into clothes dryer

Insist on wearing clashing, out-of-season clothes and footwear

Throw laundry at ten-year-old

Give seven-year-old satisfaction of the reaction he sought to provoke

Keep crying through attempts to nurse

Toss toys down the steps

FREE SPACE

Refuse to wipe myself

FREE SPACE

Ignore admonition to get into pajamas

Find every distraction possible from homework

Demand to nurse juuuust when Mommy has begun to drift to sleep

Pull four-year-old’s hair

Refuse to eat because food was served on wrong color plate

Break eyeglasses. Again.

Feign stupidity in order to evade responsibility

Contract high fever just to drive parents into a panic

Dump kitchen garbage all over the floor

Traipse about the house stark naked, requesting help finding what to wear

Leave house without informing parents

Insist I’m fine in just a T-shirt on a really cold day

  1. You know this game well. But if you win, do you really win? 😉

    • Oh, heck, I’m in it just to hear the guy running things call out, “Daddy, I peed on the floor!”
