Today, while MMan was taking a marathon nap, HandyMan and I played cards with GGirl. For her birthday she received a boxed set of children's classic card games. She's starting to get the hang of them. I think she's on her way to a competitive streak, but when it comes to cards, it's in her genes.
I come from a few generations of card players. Stories are told and I have fond memories of playing cards with my grandparents on both sides of the family: Uno, Hand & Foot, and Skip Bo were all family favorites. Gatherings with my parents often include a round of cards. And now GGirl is joining the card-playing ranks of the family.
