Money and Marriage Empowerment 101
January 25, 2013
Growing up as a child, I would do anything for my family to play games with me. I'm talking everything from wash the dishes, take out the trash, clean other sibling's room - whatever it was. I loved to play all types of games such as Scrabble, Go Fish, Wheel of Fortune, Battleship, Old Maids and most favorite I believe was Bingo. What a way to have fun with numbers. Calling out a letter and a number, and the anticipation of seeing who would be the first one to get five in a row - whether up, down, diagonal or could you even get lucky enough to double bingo. Oh yes, what a time our family would have playing Bingo. You know how they say history often repeats itself? Well it does once you become a parent. Fast forward so many years and I have twins. One of the first games I remember my husband buying them was Bingo. As soon as I saw it, the memories came flooding back and the excitement begin to well up in side. I knew that these kids would be the same way. Sure enough there they were saying, "Mom is there anything we can do for you around the house"? Slowly after my asking, what is it you would like. Those words that I had often said before to my mom and brother came exiting their mouth - we want to play Bingo! I couldn't help but to chuckle. I decided to switch it up on them. As a homeschool parent, one of the courses we are taking is Spanish. Our daughter was adamant that she wanted to learn how to speak Spanish. Of course she had no idea I would say this. If you finish cleaning up the downstairs family room, we should take a break and play binguez. Her eyes got big, and she said is that the word for Bingo in Spanish? I said of course it is. In her excitement, she said can we call out the numbers in Spanish? I said absolutely as long as you are saying it correctly! Talk about a fun time and way to save money, playing board games. Get some popcorn and let the games begin!
