Grumpy Old Troll

Okay, so now that I have a video of it, I should finally tell you about the kids' favorite game to play before bed.

Maybe if you have kids, you know the "Grumpy Old Troll" from the Dora series on Nick Jr. There's even a little song that goes with it. Well, Jason sang it a few times and then we downloaded it and have it on a CD in the playroom. So the kids sing it a lot and told Jason he was the grumpy old troll. Well, one night it evolved into a game where the kids go into Bryce's room and wait, Jason hides and then whistles when he's ready for them to find him. Then they bound out of the room feigning fear and find him. When they find him, he usually chases them back to Bryce's room and tickles them while they try to get under the covers. He usually catches one of them on the way back and both kids are giggling uncontrollably while they ask for another round before bed.

So, see for yourself. This is what the kids BEG for every night now and are deeply disappointed if we run out of time.

Cherish these memories and keep these thoughts with you for when you are having a difficult day and need a "pick me up". This is the best. This is what it's all about :-)
