The Biggest Word You Ever Heard

So my family is in the process of selecting songs to record when we get together this summer and in the future. One of the CDs we're creating will be all Disney songs. Thinking about all this fun music, I walked downstairs, singing Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious: "Because I was afraid to speak when I was just a lad, me father gave me nose a tweak and told me I was bad. But then one day I learned a word to save me achin' nose - the biggest word you ever heard and this is how it goes! Oh..."

Then I pointed to Cameron. He looked at me and said, "Antidisestablishmentarianism?"

The rules to Abigail's game

Abigail asked me to play "Go Fish" with her, and then she sat me down to explain the rules. Here they are, in case your children would like to duplicate this quality parent/child time. :)

The rules:
1. Play a card face up.
2. Don't play a card until Abigail tells you to.
3. Don't start until Abigail tells you to.
4. Follow directions.
5. This is a fish game.
6. Don't play a card unless Abigail tells you it's the right one.
7. If it's the right card, play it down.
8. If it's the right card, Abigail will tell you to play it down.

Can you say "micromanager"?
