What's that game you're playing? I can't quite make it out...

It's Go Away Monster! and it is an awesome game, perfect for three-year-olds, a bit young for Aviva perhaps

Even if it's a bit young for her, is it a game where she and Noah can meet and both enjoy it on their own terms? (I'm on play terms with a six-year-old girl and her three-year-old brother, and I'm casting around for activities that let both of them play with me at once instead of one feeling left out.)

Oh yeah. They both enjoyed it. He just seemed somewhat more into it. With board games, I think you definitely want to slant it towards the younger one. Ideally you want to pick something that works as a challenging game for the younger and a casual social game for the older... you can always keep the older one entertained with table-side conversation...

On New Year's Eve this year, P & J and I were driving home just past midnight, and J rolled down his window to shout "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" to everyone we passed on the street. Someone shouted back "I love you!" and J thought that was just the coolest thing ever.
