3rd: Shower Cat.
How to play: One player has a shower while the other player is the shower cat.
A shower cat is a cat that lives in the shower, being the shower cat involves crawling around the bottom of the shower on all fours licking your paws and wagging an imaginary tale.
The game ends when the showeree drips shampoo suds into the shower cat’s eyes causing the cat to cry.
Notes: It is best if the 3 year old plays the part of shower cat.
How to play: All members of the household take part in mini competitions throughout the day.
Every game is judged on a first past the post basis, there are no prizes for a job well done or any style or technique displayed whilst playing the game.
Often players will be unaware that they have entered a race/competition and will only find out once the winner is announced.
Eeh Bah Daughter: I just won getting dressed!
Eeh Bah Mum: Huh?
EBD: You’re both still in your pyjamas so I win.
EBD: But I didn’t know I was playing and your brother can’t dress himself….
EBD: I win, I win, I win, I win, I win!
EBM: Are those the knickers you wore yesterday?
EBD: I win, I win, I win!
EBM: They’re on inside out,
EBD:I win, I win, I win, I win, I win, I win I win.
EBM:What did I tell you about wiping your bum?
Notes: I have decided to just go with it and join in with the fun. Let’s see how her 3 year old legs cope with the half marathon I’ve entered us both in.
1st: Scary Questions.
How to play: One player asks a series of bizarre questions and then ignores the other player until total panic has set in.
The aim of the game is to cause the maximum amount of fear in the other player. Extra points for getting someone to turn the car round or call NHS direct.
Eeh Bah Daughter: Mummy if I poo on the toilet that’s good?
Eeh Bah Mum: Yes darling.
EBD: But if I poo on the floor that’s bad?
EBM: Er yes…. why?
EBM:Sweetie did you poo on the floor?
EBD STARES BLANKLY OUT OF CAR WINDOW.
EBM: When did you poo on the floor?
EBD CONTINUES STARING OUT OF WINDOW UNTIL EBM TURNS CAR ROUND AND DRIVES HOME TO CHECK FLOORS OF THE ENTIRE HOUSE. THERE IS NO POO.
Note: If there is poo on the floor Eeh Bah Daughter still wins and there is poo on the floor.
Other examples of popular rounds include. When can babies play with knives? and How many of those red berries from the garden could I eat before I died?
