We have a game at our house that Colin and I like to play. It's really just a version of "Chicken." We both listen to a screaming child/children and ignore it as long as humanly possible, hoping that the other one will do something about it. The key to winning is to act busier than the other individual...too busy to do anything about said screaming child/children. Don't try to use the "I've been dealing with this all day" excuse. It doesn't work. Trust me, I've tried. But apparently the, "She needs to eat" tag line works every time for Colin (not without receiving mass amounts of eye rolling from me). The game is also fun to play at night. Colin's key strategy to winning at night is to act like he "accidentally" elbowed me in his sleep, as if to wake me up to alert me that one of our children in screaming. My winning strategy to kick him back.
