Scissors, Paper Stone!! Let’s see who gets to hit the other person’s hand first.
Looking at the boys having a go at this game reminded me of the days back in my childhood where I too love playing this game with my sister. It was a great way to pass the time while waiting for the bus to arrive when we were out. The boys too love playing this game when we have to kill time waiting.
The only difference now is that with three of them it is a bit more complicated as it is harder to determine who is the winner and there is a high probability of the boys ganging up against their sister during the game.
Many times I will have to intervene and call for a time out if one of them starts complaining and even crying for being “bullied” during the game.
Rushing for kiddy rides when we are out is one of Tiger girl’s favourite activity. I remember the boys too being crazy over such rides when they were her age.
My mum constantly reminds me that I too was equally fascinated over kiddy rides at her age and would go from one to the other if I had the chance to. My sister and I would drain all the coins she had in her purse in the process of getting our dose of fun.
Nowadays the price of a kiddy ride has increased ten fold from $0.20 to $1.00/2.00 for certain rides. I have been extremely reluctant to let them go on such expensive rides and they would bug me non-stop for it.
To make it more budget friendly to me, the kids are only allowed to go on rides which can either accommodate all three of them at the same time or take turns. The other alternative is for them to go on them without me placing any money in it to activate it.
It’s really interesting to know that the kids too do enjoy the things that I used to love when I was a kid.
How was it for you and your
own siblings growing up?
