Waiting is a learned skill in today’s society where instant gratification rules. When I’m alone, I’m a Jedi Master of waiting. I have trained my brain and breathing to maintain inner peace despite the trials of people who grocery shop at gas stations with coupons or the tribulations of dealing with AT&T’s offshored technical support services.
However, add kids to the mix and I regress to the immaturity of a youngling in no time. So to help cope with having to wait with children in tow, my husband and I have a host of games we play. Might I add, these games require NO use of electronics.
