That's The Point of Everything, Right? :)

The other night, the four of us were hanging out in the living room, enjoying being together on a cold, rainy evening.   The kids were playing on the floor and Shaun was reclined against the couch playing a game on his cell phone.  Bean hopped over to him and asked,

"What are you playing, Daddy?" 

Shaun told her the name of the game and immediately she asked,

"Daddy, can I play?"

Shaun tried to stall her by saying,

"But Bean, you don't know how to play."

"Yes I do!"

"How could you?  A minute ago you didn't even know what this game was called."

Bean paused and walked away for a second.  Then she came back and asked to play again.  Shaun tried to thwart her request by asking,

"OK, then... what's the point of the game?" 

Without a pause, she looked at him and said,

"To win, Daddy."

Not quite what he was looking for, but she had him.  Smart girl.


  1. I love it!! Kids are so much smarter than we are - they get right to the point!

  2. There is no come back to that comment. I like that she didn't even have to think about her response.
