“Hockey”

By Aunt Amy

February 22, ’16

Aunt Amy has at least 1 thing going for her. And that would be her Kindle Fire. And that is because her 5 nephews, each & every one of them, from age 11 all the way down to the 2-year-old, love playing on the tablet in whatever game suits them at any given time.

So 2 cousins aka my 7 & 6 year old nephews were in my bedroom 1 recent afternoon.

“Can we agree on a game?” asked the younger of the 2. Hockey was the chosen Kindle game of the moment.

Oh, but for hearing the words flowing from their little lips! Each delivered an expression that particularly stuck out as . . . Cute? Charming? Wildly but not surprisingly hilarious?

As an aunt I couldn’t be happier to hear the following:

“It was 7-3,” he told me proudly with his brown eyes sparkling, a grin erupting from ear to ear across the 6-year-old’s beaming face. “I won.”

The rhyming remark fired earlier from the mouth of his older cousin was equally memorable.

“I got skills,” he stated while enormous gobs of confidence oozed from both of his ears with he syllable he spoke. “That’s how I pay the bills.”

The End
