Happy bonding on Father's Day

I Am Happy by lancelonie

There is always a fit when Sophia loses Clash Royale.  When she gets annoyed, she will make sure I get annoyed, too.  So, she either throws her cellphone - or herself - on the ground.  That always worked.

Finally, I had that clashy-thingy game uninstalled from her iPhone.  I said (as if in a corporate scenario), "it is recurrent and an 'issue'...  It ruins relationships."  I also made this car rule - no looking on any of our gadgets (except navigation.  Haha.)  "Go focus your eyes outside the window and read some signs," I strongly 'advised'.

Read signs.  That is another issue.  She cannot read because she had become nearsighted (which is another story).

Sophia, as always, complied without hesitation.  She is a good girl.  Sans the Clash Royale losses and those silly tantrums, she is my one Happy Girl . . . even happier when "photo-bonding" with her Daddy.

Happy Father's Day!

Sophia:  "Hey, Daddy!  How about a game of Clash Royale?"
Daddy:  "Later...  I'm doing Fantasy Sports."
Sophia:  "Oh, come on, Daddy!  Just once!  Please!!!"
Daddy:  "Alright."

The game starts and progresses...

Sophia:  "Oh, no!  I'm losing, Daddy!!!  Play it!  Play it!  Help!!!"
Daddy:  "That's alright.  We can start over."
Sophia:  "No!!!  I losing!  I don't want to lose!"
Daddy:  "I said that's ok."
Sophia:  "Nooooooooo!!!"

Daddy stops watching and looks away.

Sophia (pouting):  "Okay, Daddy.  I lost."
Daddy (still quiet)
Sophia:  "Oh, well...  I think I'm better off with My Singing Monsters.  Here, Daddy, listen...  It's cool sound."

Daddy:  "A game is just a game.  If you lose, it's not the end of the world.  There's always another try."
Sophia:  "Understood, Daddy."
