Media Alert: I Declare WAR

I have contacted the media.

Tonight, my children and I played a modified version of that good old standby card game, war.

We played for 15 minutes, taking turns, cheering for one another. We all understood the game, and we all had fun.

Never have I experienced this as a parent. I am not sure I can really believe it happened.

My daughter will be seven next month and my son nine shortly thereafter but multiple challenges stand in the way of something as simple as playing a card game together. Tonight, we declared war on those challenges. We achieved a million miles of success.

I have no idea who won the game.

I am pretty sure we all did.
