Have you seen that commercial for Candy Land? (or it could be for Memory, I forget ...)
The point of the commercial is to take time to play with your child. They get out the game and the background fades and all you focus on is this lovely mother and her lovely son playing together. I love this sentiment.
HOWEVER, I have to take issue with a few things:
- She is playing with one child. Yes, I realize many have one child, and then there are many who don't. Where is the version that has the lovely mother playing with her lovely 4 year old, while her lovely 2 year old keeps disrupting the pieces and having her set it all up again, and her lovely baby crawling onto and then sitting in the middle of the board? Hmmmm? Haven't seen that one, yet.
- She MUST have a million hours in the day. Her house is SPOTLESS. She, herself, is SPOTLESS. Obviously, she has put these two things way ahead of spending quality time with her child. (I say, as my bitterness gets the best of me.)
- Nobody is eating the pieces.
