Pente: aka parental humiliation


Pente, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

I lost to Caitrin 6 times and to Liam, 5 times.

As Jon said after losing to Johannah, "I liked these kids better when they were four."

Clarity is not as good as I like, but today I got to 10:00 p.m. without a photo and this is the only one close to anything worth posting.

I think it's a cool shot.

(And I haven't won a game of anything against any of my kids in years. Sigh.)

Fabulous photo!! I love the reflections in the pieces.

Neat shot!

I like it! The colors of the pieces, the focus on the fingertip -- very nice. :)

I don't know what that game is, but I've always loved those glass marble thingies.

Hey, I think the clarity is just fine. And the shot is pretty cool! Sorry about all the losses, having kids can be such a humiliation :).

Yeah, that's a cool shot--the colors in the glass are nice. I can already begin to see that the day's coming for me to begin losing to my children.

I remember being at a store with my mother, must have been very late in middle school, and asking about Scrabble, and she said there was no point in getting it because I wouldn't be a challenge to play against, but I talked her into getting the game. I think she won the first two times we played, but then I won the next few and she quit playing with me.

I used to love playing Pente--then the kids got older. Both this and the sunlight shot are super.

Will played LOTR Risk with Lydia (10) on Sunday evening. She beat him so soundly his head was still spinning when he came to bed. She was thrilled. ;-)
