Kids Gambling Den

The kids came home one night last week and disappeared, which they do most days. I just assumed that they were playing in their rooms. Turns out that they had set up a gambling cubby in the toilet. They were in there for over an hour. They have always loved small spaces like big boxes and cupboards for their games.

They love card games now, although they sometimes get a bit heated, with accusations of cheating and high skuldugary. Hannah is very competitive, often changing the rules mid hand. Ryan is very quick to pick to complain about her tactics. Screaming is an almost inevitable consequence of their games at some point.

Glad there are no guns in the house.

That's what you call a full flush?
Royal flush?
Full house?
"He gives me the shits when he cheats" has a whole new meaning.

Hannah who is at home with me thinks that is very funny. Good work Jayne.

Have to find somewhere to get up to mischief.

Hopefully you have more than one toilet in your house. It would be a shame to break up a lucky streak.
