My son has figured out how to make his Spiderman Operation game buzz continuously by wedging the little pincher into one of the holes, snugged up to the metal edges. Then he grins at me and covers his ears. "Cover your ears, Mommy!" He usually does this when I'm trying to get some work done.
Lately we've been playing checkers, and he plays within the regular rules for approximately one game, give or take a few moves. After that, it's his rules. I never win, no matter which set of rules we are using.
Another game, one he just made up the other day, is called "Guess What?" It goes like this:
-Um, your feet are ticklish.
-Yes they are.
-No, that's not it, guess, Mommy!
-Yes it is, though.
-You have to guess three times.
-It's getting dark.
-Okay that was three guesses.
-No, you have to guess four times.
- insert guess
-You have to guess five times.
-You have to guess previous number plus one times.
etc, ad infinitum ...
