You should play "Old Maid" with my 4 year old!
I was playing the card game "Old Maid" with my 4 year old daughter last week. I shuffled several times to mix the cards up really well, dealt out the entire deck between she and I, all 50 something cards.
Before my daughter picked up her hand of face-down cards, she looked at me and suddenly announced, "I hid the 'Old Maid' card!"
"Why?" I asked.
"Because I didn't want anyone to get it," she replied.
And sure enough, she lifted a nearby book to reveal the hidden "Old Maid" card underneath.
I laughed so hard!
Crazy, hilarious, sweet, sweet girl!
So, sweet that not only does she not want to get the "Old Maid" card herself, but doesn't want anyone else to get it either!
Although it doesn't make for a very exciting game of "Old Maid", I am so grateful for her caring, sensitive spirit!
