When not shoveling snow or being pelted by snowballs, the cold weather has given me more time for indoor family fun.
"Indoor family fun" is an umbrella term I use to describe any activity that keeps those kiddos busy and not fighting.
So, we have lots of board games available.
My only restrictions are no Monopoly (boring and even shortened versions involve too much time) or Risk (same complaint as Monopoly).
As such the classic crime game of Clue is a popular choice.
The other day during a contested match of Clue, little girl announced she was ready to solve the case.
"It was Professor Plum in the Conservatory with the candlestick!"
Annoyed that his sister had just won, older brother said:
"No, no, no, no. It was Colonel Mustard in the garden tub with oversized rolls of toilet paper. Mustard then fled on foot into the Library, and was able to hide there for days because no one reads books anymore. He finally turned himself in after his iPhone lost charge and he could no longer check his Facebook and Twitter accounts."
Nothing like frigid temperatures and quality time with the siblings to spark a teen's creative mind, eh?
