Hello Mr Spotty....

Probably a different post to what the title suggests. You will find no acne stories here.

Rather, I saw a reflection of light from my watch which reminded me of a game I used to play with my babies in the car. As you may know waiting with two littlies can be fraught with frustration for all.

Out would come Mr Spotty! Yay! As said, Mr Spotty was the reflection from my watch but, oh, what Mr Spotty could do!

He would bounce up and down to the joyful singing from my two little babies. He loved to hear singing!

He was also very good at playing hide and seek! And would appear and disappear to the excited screams of 'there he is' or 'here he is'. Strangely enough he couldn't appear on a cloudy. Funny that.

Now, I can't take credit for inventing Mr Spotty as I think the original concept of a chalk-drawing version was on Humphrey B Bear. But my interpretation kept my kiddies entertained for ages. Usually until Master T started to shout naughty words then Mr Spotty had to leave. Awww. Sometimes he came back but alas there are lessons and rules in everyday life

The kids remember Mr Spotty very well and still comment when the round reflection from my watch hits the car roof. Ahhh, memories.

What inventive games to you entertain your children with? Feel free to use this one. Works a treat and did help the time go quickly I must say....

ciao for now
