Soren got several new games for his birthday and we've been trying to find the time to play on the weekends.
Last weekend we tried Fibber.
Basically, it's a little kid version of poker in that lying is the whole point. You set cards down from your hand and say, "I have three bigfoots." Which may or may not be true, then you have to guess whether or not someone is telling the truth. If you get caught lying, you have to add a nose to your glasses. The one with the shortest nose wins.
It proved pretty entertaining to me. Azure's plan was just not to lie, ever. "But I don't want to lie." But, you're supposed to. "Yeah, but I don't want to." Um, ok.
Soren tried to lie. "I have two aliens." I'd look right into his face. He'd squirm. His lips would quiver, holding back a smile, until he turned bright red, then burst out laughing. Worst liar ever.
Jonas can keep a straight face. Really straight face. Good to know. But, he goes for the gold, throws down all his cards and says "I have five, maybe seven, whatever." Doesn't know how to moderate.
It was a lesson that taught this momma a lot about what these kids were capable of. It may come in handy in the future.
