A Fun New Game

I need to focus on more positive things. I need to focus more on the positive. I positively need to focus on something besides the negative!

Seems like so much of what I do involves so much negativity. Reading labels - looking for "bad" ingredients; just managing his health care... and that involves Nick's behavior. Whoa.

Anyway - I am going to focus on something fun! We found a game that Nicolas likes, and it doesn't take hours to play; it has won awards, features safe paint, is made from all wood and it involves some strategy, which is fun... plus, it is good for him (meaning he doesn't get too worked-up or over-stimulated) ! It's called...

Gobblet Jr.

I ordered this game back in November of last year and just got around to picking it up last Friday. I can't really explain why it took me so long to go get it, it just did. Maybe it's because I never really know what to expect from Nick... who knows? There are many things that I can not explain any more. Back to the game.

It is pretty fun, the first 8 times you play...

It is similar to tic-tac-toe, except that you can gobble up your opponent and move your pieces around the board. The object is to be the first to line up three pieces in a row and you win! I really do try to spend time with just Nicolas, doing things that he likes to do. I played Gobblet Jr. with him until I fell asleep and tipped over last night. To which Nicolas said, "Ok, Mom - we'll just play one last round."


  1. Looks like a fun, cute game. I had never seen it before.

    Our boys like chess, but I'm glad they can play each other, since it's not my favorite. :)

  2. Hi there, thanks for following my blog! :) I have a special interest in autism, so I would really like to learn more by following your family's story. Blessings, Jen
