Best, Worst & Funniest…

A couple of years ago I mentioned at school that getting any news out of the kids about what happened at school was sometimes like pulling teeth. I was given three little laminated cards with smiley faces and a brief instruction sheet for a little dinner time game called best, worst and funniest. The instructions and the cards (which had smiley face, sad face & laughing face) have long since disappeared and yet Best, Worst & Funniest remains a regular part of our day and is usually instigated by the boys.  The basic idea is that you go around the table and say

“The best thing that happend to me today was……” then the worst and to ensure you finish on a good night then the funniest. The things the kids have told me as a result of this silly little game is amazing. And not always directly what is said but often the conversation that it leads to.

Today the best thing that happened to Owen, Brett and Corey was their dinner (spinach and riccotta filled pasta with a carbonara sauce), for me it was that Owen cooked the dinner (I helped but he did most of it).

and when it came to the worst thing (we did the weekend as Owen was at a cub sleepover last night and we were out for dinner so didn’t play)….gotta love Owen’s worst thing……”nothing….I had a perfect weekend”……gotta love that!

and the other exciting news …….*insert drumroll here* BRETT can tie his own shoelaces!!!!!! well done Brett!

and of course also looking forward to lunch tomorrow with my cousin who has just moved from Perth to Victoria (about an hour from here) and whom I haven’t seen in 15 years!

and with that I will say goodnight.

    We used to do this with the kids at bed time, but we’ve gotten a bit out of the habit. It is a good idea.
