My Little Card Shark
My son has turned into a card shark. I don't know if I should be proud of him or embarrassed. It is nice that he has a potential source of income and is only 4 years old.
Here's how it is. He loves himself a good game of Uno or War. He will explain all the rules to you, down to how you can not use a Draw 4 if you have any of the color being played in your hand. He is honest. That is, unless you let him "shuffle"
He stacks the deck. The little booger stacks the deck and looks at you, with his big green eyes, and exclaims "Look, I shuffled all by myself!"
You really don't want to squash their spirit so you go with it. That is, until, you realize that every time he "shuffles" he gets 3 wilds and a couple of draw 2s. In War, it's aces and Kings.
So the card shark is no longer allowed to shuffle.
Just wait until we introduce Monopoly. He's SO NOT going to be the banker!
