Want to see your kid glow? Really beam? Turn off the TV, set down the newspaper and play a board game with her. I watched my whining 3 year old transform into a peppy little chatterbox flitting- no. More like exploding, off the walls the moment I agreed to play her game. We started "game night" a few months ago when she got Memory for her third birthday. We somehow acquired a second game, Sequence, that I think is equally entertaining. Then Christmas rolled around and it must have been boardgame mating season because we now own about 6.
