Carver is becoming more difficult to entertain as the Midwest winter rolls on…
I’m trying to cut back on screen time although he loves watching YouTube videos of boys playing with Legos. He threw a fit the other day when I turn the TV off and told him that he had to take a break from TV and find something creative to do.
He was very upset so I had to get extra creative and pull out a game that we haven’t played before.
Carver was actually given this game when he was just a year old. It has sat on his shelf in his room for so long and every night before bed he would ask if he could play the fish game and I always said “Yep we can do that tomorrow!”
While he was throwing a temper tantrum on the floor in the living room I snuck upstairs and got this game.
I used to play it all the time when I was a kid and my mom did in-home daycare from the day I was in kindergarten all the way up until I was in eighth grader.
Carver and I made a game out of putting the batteries in and using our tools to open the battery pack and put it in.
The game has a little switch that you turn on in the fish go around and around and open and close their mouth while carver “goes fishing.”
As you can tell he absolutely loved it! I snatched a few pictures because I thought it would be a super fun game for a grandfather and his grandson to play together when it’s too cold to go fishing!
Carver is also very excited to announce we FINALLY found a swing set! Grandma Joey (My mom) got Carver a money jar for his birthday. He’s been saving his money to buy a swing set! We finally found one we will be purchasing on the Facebook marketplace! Check it out!
Now we just have to wait for the snow to melt to take it apart and haul it home.
I don’t have much more than that for blog post today and I’m sorry about that. We had a really busy weekend and I haven’t got the chance to get caught up on blog posts.
Monday begins a new work week and plenty of other drama going on in the Friedman house which I will update you on more later this week.
Thanks for reading! Stop back tomorrow morning for another post that’s hopefully more interesting than this one was!
