Sore Loser

While doing our Gratitude Stones at supper tonight, Harrison said after some hemming and hawing that he was glad that Mommy and Daddy and he had gotten to play UNO at lunch that day. He’s becoming quite the card shark with that game and seems to really enjoy it. He doesn’t enjoy losing to anyone, but he’s working on that.

To that end, Robert asked what he should say to someone he has just played and beaten. In his happiest, most upbeat voice, Harrison said, “Good game!” and smiled a big grin.

“What about if you played someone and they won?”

Looking down at the table, shoulders slumped in defeat, Harrison said in his most pitiful monotone, “Good game.”

At least he has part of it right.
